Hi Dr. Standley! Cherokee is in my blood, for as long as I could remember I've had people call me "Sa La Lune". No one will tell me what it means, do you know?
Thank you for the e-mail and visiting my website.
Awesome . . Cherokee Blood. (smiles) . . . I've not heard the name "Sa La Lune," although I'll try to remember to ask some of my kin to see if they know. Those syllables are DEFINITELY Cherokee, I can tell you that much.
You might ask those who call you Sa La Lune to see "why" they call you this, because I would imagine they would know if they call you this. They'd have to have a reason. Sounds like a pretty cool name.
Please, ask those who call you this and get back to me and I'll do my part on this end. I'll be talking to my brother-in-law over Christmas because he speaks fluent Cherokee. Although he is a Western Band Cherokee (Oklahoma) and I AM Eastern Band Cherokee (North Carolina). The dialects are different. But the syllables are STILL Cherokee.
I hope this helps some and solidifies that it is INDEED Cherokee. Please write me back and let me know what you found out. I may answer few e-mails during Christmas so I'll get back to you as soon as I can when I hear from you again.
