The Cherokees' geography and climate affected their lifestyle. The Cherokee lived in several states. They lived in Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina and North Carolina.

 The Cherokee had several waterways to the Ohio river, Mississippi river, little Tennessee and the Tennessee river. The Cherokee have one mountain range, the Smoky Mountains, that was before the Eurepeans came. The weather for the Cherokee was 50 in the fall, around 30 in the winter, 80 in the summer and 40 in the spring.

Whenever the Cherokee needed food they would either hunt, gather or grow. When they would hunt they mostly got buffalo. They would use every part of the buffalo including their eyeballs.

The Cherokee used two houses, an Asi and a Longhouse.
A Longhouse was a house that the Cherokee used in the summer. It looks like a modern day cabin. It's made of wood, mud and clay. There is also a fire pit in the middle of the house. It isn't always burning but it is there. There are several families that live in one house.

The next house is called an Asi . It is made of white oak and it is used in the winter. The house is also partly underground to keep it warmer; there's always a fire burning in the Asi. 
 The asi has long tree trunks going into the ground to help the house stay up because it is partly underground. These houses help the Cherokee to survive that's why they chose the houses that they did.
