Cherokee   education Before the Europeans came to America, old Cherokee men would educate the children about their culture by telling them stories about how Cherokee land was created. After Europeans arrived, they tried to convince the Cherokee to let them open schools for the children. It would give them a way to spread their religious beliefs. In 1801, the Cherokee agreed to let the white men open a school because they wanted their children to have the tools to resist the white men’s efforts to take over their land.
