[Northkeep] Conact question for personas

I am trying to find something reguarding how the SCA looks at cultures.  I
remember the first definition of what groups personas were chosen from
being mostly Western European and then cultures who were in contact with
them.  I am looking for info defining what degree of contact.  With the
upcoming demo in Tahlequah I am sure I will get info on the Cherokee and
want to be able to answer those.  In my research so far, I can find the
first insidences of the Cherokee being taken to England to meet with the
Royal family there was in 1760 or 1762 which is out of period; but De Soto
did cross the area where the Cherokee lived in 1540.  Between these two
reference points, what would someone do to support a Cherokee persona if
they were so inclined to want to do so?  and are ones who represent
cultures outside of the basic Western European cultures limited to the time
frame in which the culture was in contact with Western Europe or any time
in period?

Yes, I am curious and really wish to be able to have the resources to
answer questions that will come.  If you have someone outside of these
lists who you think would have information on this to help me, please
forward it on to them.

Thank you,
