Rev. Cherokee


Rev. Cherokee was a remote character at the Maxwell Street Market in the 1960s and 1970s, who had a promoter at the Market.  In Native American headdress, this individual promoted her services to potential clients as the “Indian Healer” and “woman of God” by distributing her pamphlet that directed them to her private home at 11753 S. Halsted, where she kept hours from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. every Sunday.  She charged $1.00 for a visit.
