Oral tradition says that the Nickens Cherokee blood came from the Collins in middle Tenn. The Nickens of America are all descended from Yoconahawakan aka Richard Nicken, a Virginia Indian. His descendants migrated to middle Tenn. from North Carolina after the Revolutionary War. There, as English-speaking Indian farmers many were called Melungeons. One politician defined Melungeons as "dirty Indian sneaks". Not wanting to be called either Melungeons or dirty Indian sneaks, many more palitable lineages came into being. To get a more full perspective of this phenomenon visit any of the many Melungeon web sites. James Nickens
