A-MA-DO-YA - MOYTOY:
A-ma = Water, Do-ya = Beaver. There seems to be confusion about the descendants of Moytoy probably due to there being two Chief Moytoys. The first was Chief Amatoya Moytoy of Chota, b abt 1640, who married Quatsy (QUE-DI-SI) of Tellico and Wolf Clan). The second is Chief Moytoy, aka the Pigeon of Tellico. The second Moytoy is believed to be either the son or grandson of Amatoya Moytoy. It is also thought that Amatoya Moytoy had 3 sons and 8 daughters.

Atta kulla kulla was a noted Cherokee chief that was recognized by the British government as the head chief or "emperor" of the Nation. He was commonly known to the whites as the Little Carpenter and the name is frequently spelled Atta-kulla-kulla, Ata-kullakulla or Ata-culculla. It may stem from "Leaning wood" (ata = wood and gul kalu = a verb implying that something long is leaning). Bartram described him as "A man of remarkably small stature, slender and of a delicate frame, the only instance I saw in the Nation; but he is a man of superior abilities."

A'gansta'ta, Cunne Shoate, Oconostota, the Great Warrior
When archaeologists dug into the site of the Chota council house which was the capital city of the Chickamaugans, they unearthed the remains of Oconostota. They knew who it was because his eyeglasses were with him (a rarity among Indians, he wore eyeglasses in his late years), and he still lay in the canoe in which he was known to have been buried. Can the dead never rest!
