Booger Ceremony was held when warriors wanted
to ridicule (make fun of) enemies. During this ceremony, Cherokee men who were
going to battle would wear the Booger masks they had made.
Almost all Cherokee ceremonies were held at the council house, which is near the center of the village. One of the most important Cherokee ceremonies is the Green Corn ceremony. Ceremonies like the Green Corn last about three weeks!
The Green Corn ceremony is held whenever the crops are ripe. It was called the Green Corn because the corn was not green. At this ceremony, there was a great feast with many good foods prepared by the women of the village. One thing the women made was a special cornbread.
