My knowlege of the Cherokee language is pretty much non-existant. What pray tell does your Sig say?

Yep. It means "Big", or "Great" Cherokee man. That's Ned Christie in the pic. A little more info about him here:

Cool! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

The only one I knew for sure was Tsalagi, Equa took a little research. I guessed Asgaya based on some phrases I found. I had it narrowed down somewhere between "man" and "shirt". I went with the logical choice between the two. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Being from SC may have helped a tiny, tiny bit.

Thanks a lot all, I have a fair amount of Cherokee blood in me and it was driving me crazy trying to figure it out. I'm not the greatest web surfer and resources here in Mobile are pretty thin. Thanks again! ~S~
