A city in Georgia. 

Translated as "place of yellow money" from Cherokee Indians. 

The Cherokee refer to themselves as Tsalagi which means "Principal People." The Iroquois, who were based in New York, called the Cherokee Oyata’ge'ronoñ (inhabitants of the cave country).

"Cherokee, an Iroquoian-speaking people, are latecomers to Southern Appalachia, who may have migrated in late prehistoric times from northern areas, the traditional territory of the later Haudenosaunee and other Iroquoian-speaking peoples".

In 1828, Dahlonega became the site for the first major gold rush in United States.  It was a city in 1833 named Talonega.  It was changed to Dahlonega from Cherokee-language word "Dalongie" meaning "yellow" or "gold".  Numerous illegal gold minds were developed trespassing into Cherokee Nation and "went against the treaty between Federal government and Cherokee Nation in the Treaty of Washington 1819". 

(Dahlonega in 1879)

It is now a popular tourist place for historic purposes and the local festivals such as "Gold Rush Days" attract many tourists (over 200,000 people) in their annual 2 day event during the third weekend of October.
