According to Cherokee Legend, the Moon-Eyed people inhabited the Southern Appalachias. They were very different from the Native Americans in that they were very pale and bearded and could only see at night. Full moons would blind them.
Small structures can be found carved into the mountains that are said to be left by these nocturnals.
Georgia actually has a nod to the moon-eyed legend in one of their state parks where remnants of a mysterious wall can be found.
