Im 100% native American. Honest. I was born in upstate New York!
I was born on a small island off the northeastern coast of the United States. My ancestors paid Granny Warren's ancestors 24 dollars for it.

Granny Warren's ancestors were probably out in NW Mexico on their way to Cahokia and never got to Lon Giland in time for the sale.
One band of Chickasaw (related to the Cherokee) has a legend about letting the horse go and following him until he stopped.
That means they started moving after the Spanish had arrived with the horses to be followed.
So that journey probably started about 1550 ~
