About "Standing Turkey" Eagle of Chota, Uku of Chota

Before 1794 the Cherokee had no standing national government. Various leaders were appointed by mutual consent of the towns to represent the nation to British, sometimes French, and later American authorities. The title the Cherokee used was First Beloved Man, "Beloved Man" being the true translation of the title "Uku", which the English translated as "Chief", and his only real function was to serve as focal point for negotiations with Europeans.

Standing Turkey was First Beloved Man (chief) 1760-1761.
