1710 ca1783
a skiagusta of Chota and the First Beloved Man of the Cherokee from 1775 to 1781. Oconostota first appears in historical records in 1736. He was a prominent warrior among the Cherokee, and was called "The Great Warrior of Chota." He may have been influenced by the German utopian Christian Priber, who lived with the Cherokee from about 1735 to 1739. He eventually transferred his allegiance from the French to the British, and in 1753 led a pro-British Cherokee force against the Choctaw.
