The most civilized were the Cherokees, they were the leaders. The tribe still owned most of their heartlands, and they took advice of the white to be cilivized. They made economic progress, and they ask for schools. The tribe was literate, and communicate with each other in writing. They began to publish a newspaper with the columns in English and Cherokee (so fullbloods can be informed on current happenings.) They published books and the Bible in Cherokee language. They developed a responsible government and formulate a legal code. The government has a princial chief, a council and a system of courts.
