Full Answer

The Cherokee Indians settled in Virginia, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky. They did not live in tipis; contrary to popular belief, the only Indians to live in tipis were the nomadic Plains Indians.

The Cherokee Indians needed resilient housing to protect themselves from the elements. In winter, they covered their woven sapling log cabins with mud to keep out the frigid air and snow. During summer, the Cherokee resided in larger dwellings with grass and bark roofs to let in more light and air. In 2014, Cherokee Indians live in modern houses and apartments.
