Donald N. Yates (also published as Donald Panther-Yates) was born in 1950 in Cedartown, Georgia and is of one-quarter Cherokee-Choctaw descent. His first book was The Bear Went over the Mountain, a genealogy and social history of the Yates family of Virginia. On his mother's side he is descended from Black Fox, the last of the great Cherokee chiefs, and on his father's side his ancestry includes Col. Will Thomas, the founder of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. A recent book is Old World Roots of the Cherokee: How DNA, Ancient Alphabets and Religion Explain the Origins of America's Largest Indian Nation (published by McFarland in July 2012).

“Red Man’s Origin” appeared in the Indian Chieftain, a Vinita, Oklahoma newspaper.
It is the words of George Sahkiyah “Soggy” Sanders who became a Senator from Oklahoma though he spoke little English nor wrote any Cherokee. His word were translated by William Eubanks. A Picture of Soggy is in the first few pages of the Book.
Donald Panther-Yates along with friends Richard Mack Bettis and Brian Wilkes transcribed the original English Text and added some very interesting notes at the end of the story. A Story that begins with the Cherokee having to leave their flooded homeland, separating clans and reuniting in the New World minus 5 of them. The Clans were reorganized into 7 Clans based on the Yohna Constellation. What’s that you ask. You haven’t heard? Read the book you will be enlightened and engaged.
Indeed the book can easily be read, which in-fact, supports the authenticity of the subject matter. As a reader I found myself reading the book multiple times and reviewing several areas to assist with my comprehension of the material. Personally each time I found or learned a new fact or clue.
The Red Man's Origin offers details that were published and recorded in history; it does not tamper or attempt to misguide history.
