The Cherokee and those they descended from were on this continent for thousands of years before the white man set foot on it. Stories, legends and culture were passed down orally, but Sequoya developed a form of Cheorkee writing which allowed that lore and information to be transferred from those that held it (Medicine men, or Shamans) such as A`yûn'inï or "Swimmer, Gatigwanasti, Gahuni, and Inâ'lï, or "Black Fox" , into English.
The Cherokee used herbs for healing. An astonishing number have proved to be valuable in modern pharmacology. Many modern drugs have active ingredients based on these herbs that were chemically synthesized. More than two hundred drugs are derived from their healing remedies. Beginning in 1993, the National Institute of Health recognized the importance and use of herbal medicine as a treatment for certain types of illnesses.
Jack C. Montgomery, a Cherokee from Oklahoma, and a First Lieutenant with the 45th Infantry Division Thunderbirds, on 22 February 1944, near Padiglione, Italy, Montgomery's rifle platoon was under fire by three echelons of enemy forces, when he single-handedly attacked all three positions, taking prisoners in the process. For this he won the Medal of Honor. Charles George, a Cherokee from North Carolina, and Private First Class in Korea when he was killed on 30 November 1952. During the battle, George threw himself upon a grenade and smothered it with his body. In doing so, he sacrificed his own life but saved the lives of his comrades. George was posthumously award the Medal of Honor in 1954.

Where is this beef jerky hiding?
I can't find it on line anywhere.
They may have changed their name a long time ago and never made it onto the internet.
Check in some of the local stores in Ohio. Maybe it is still being sold there locally.

If your Unemployment Benefits ran out on Christmas Day which Grinch do you blame?
Start at the beginning. I would blame teacher's unions in the public school systems all over America for turning out dumbed down, propaganda filled, lemmings; who voted for a national disgrace. The triumvirate of disaster: Obama Reed and Pelosi. The 3 real life Grinches who stole Christmas from over 2,500,000 people.
New true words to an old favorite. Dedicated by me to the Non fictional Grinch ~
You're a mean one Obama
You really are a heel
You’re as cuddly as a cactus
You're as charming as an eel
You’re a bad banana with a greasy black peel
You're a monster Obama
Your Hearts an empty hole
Your brain is full of spiders
You’ve got garlic in your soul Obama
I wouldn’t touch you with a
39 and a half Foot pole
You’re a vile one Obama
You have termites in your smile
You have all the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile
Given the choice between the two of you
I’d take the a seasick crocodile
You’re a foul one Obama
You’re a nasty wasty skunk
Your heart is full of unwashed socks,
Your soul is full of gunk
The 3 words that best describe you, are as follows, and I quote
Stink, Stank, Stonk
You’re a rotter Obama
You’re the king of sinful sots
Your hearts a dead tomato splotched with moldy purple spots
Your sole is an appalling dump heap
Overflowing with the most disgraceful
Assortment of deplorable rubbish
Imaginable, mangled up in tangled up knots
You nauseate me, Obama
With a nauseous super naus
You’re a crooked jerky jockey and,
you drive a crooked horse
You’re a 3 Decker sour kraut and toad stool sandwich
With arsenic sauce
