John Jolly (?-1838), Cherokee name Ahuludegi, also known as Oolooteka, was elected Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation West upon the death of his brother Tahlonteskee in 1819. He was the adoptive father of Sam Houston
During Ahuludegi's term of office, the Cherokee Nation West adopted a constitution in 1828 establishing a tripartite government, like that previously adopted by the Cherokee Nation East in 1827. That year most of the western Cherokee moved from Arkansas Territory to the newly established Indian Territory in present-day Oklahoma. Ahuludegi served as Principal Chief until his own death in December 1838.
