This unique book introduces the reader to the seven Cherokee clans, found in no other American Indian tribe. They are Wolf (Ani-Wahiya), Bird (Ani-Tsiskwa), Deer (Ani-Kawi), Twister (Ani-Gilohi), Wild Potato (Ani-Gotegewi), Panther (Ani-Sahoni) and Paint (Ani-Wodi). In each section of notes appear the etymology of the Cherokee name, synonyms and related clans, the clan's in-born strengths and character, mitochondrial DNA types, symbols and iconography, famous people, ceremonies, art and monuments. Illustrated and solidly documented, this down-to-earth guide is the first and last word on an ancient matriarchal kinship system that began in the dawn of human history and lives on in contemporary times.

The cover of Cherokee Clans is intriguing. The Paint Clan Mask was made from a Mask Making Demonstration in 1990 Cherokee, NC by Virgil Crowe. An Explanation of the representation of the Mask is back of the Title Page. This is an interesting signature for the book. In the book, Donald Panther-Yates unmasks a lost history of the Clan as well as A retrieval of the system like the lost art.
