American Indian communities have been in Kentucky for more than 11,000 years. When Euro-Americans settled here, Shawnee, Cherokee, and Chickasaw, among others, already lived here. Myths and misconceptions about American Indian people permeate many sources of information. We will dispel some of the myths about native people that persist, discuss Kentucky's native heritage, and briefly review its long history.
