The Cheraw Indians lived east of the Cherokee until they were obliged to join the Catawba people early in the 18th Century.

The Cherokee name for the route from the mountains to the Cheraw country was Suwa’li-nunnohi ["Suwali path"]. In English pronunciation, that became Swannanoa and was applied to the river and the mountains just east of Asheville. It is part of the Asheville Metropolitan Statistical Area.
