Nunnehi are a supernatural spirit race which is friendly towards humans, particularly towards the Cherokee tribe.
Nunnehi are very strong and sometimes intercede in battle on the Cherokees' behalf. Nunnehi are usually invisible
but sometimes show themselves to humans they like, appearing as regal looking human warriors.
In some Cherokee legends, Nunnehi are described as being little people like the
Yunwi Tsunsdi, appearing as
miniature warriors. In others, they are human in size and build but have an otherworldly
appearance. The name Nunnehi means "traveler" or "one who goes about."
