People who lived in the Cherokee nation ate mainly corn and beans and squash (the "Three Sisters") that they grew in their fields. They made the corn into flat breads like tacos and tortillas and they made the beans into soups and stews.
Cherokee people also ate a lot of meat, especially deer and rabbits, and a lot of fish and turtles. They did not live entirely from farming and hunting like the Mississippians to their west, though - Cherokee people kept on getting a lot of their food from gathering as well. This is probably mainly because of differences in the environment.
