Are you a raelian?
Nope. That's a Cherokee (Tsalagi, Aniyunwiya) legend from ancient Native Americans (Indians).

I am not familiar with these cherokee legends, could you give a few links?
Most of our knowledge is sung, not written. Some of it has been written down. Try this

I used to laugh at this stuff. Then over the years I heard it from many different tribes and many different elders. Check these links on
and on The Woman
Who Fell From The Sky
Our origin myths existed when we first met the Europeans, so we are not looking at post-contact, post-technological mythmaking. The stone-age Indians
were quite clear: our ancestors came from the stars. They didn't get this idea from Star Trek; Rodenberry got it from them.
I tried rationalizing this as, 'sure, a hypernova was our Mother'. But that is not what the Elders mean. They mean we literally came from a
starfaring race. But apparently one of not unlimited power. They barely made it here.
I've heard this around desert campfires and in books. And I've seen it in dated ancient petroglyphs, especially around Dinosaur National Monument.
Lucas obviously has, too.
Our legends must have spawned a lot of the 'Space Brothers' junk over the centuries.
Now, if the govt has actually found any artifacts confirming
our Ancestors stories- on the Earth or on the Moon- well, its above top secret-
thanks to Brookings
and the Alien Contact
(yeah, the original one was repealed but there's a new one in its place).
So contact may have already taken place. And ET is us.
Just the possibility means we need to take another, closer look at human origins, evolution, physics and so on...
