"Cherokee Nation: A History of Survival, Self-Determination, and Identity"
In this survey of Cherokee history, the authors have used select stories and key leaders to trace the challenges and opportunities that have shaped tribal identity.
The narrative spans more than four centuries with an emphasis on individual leadership, the struggle for internal unity, and the fight against the forces that attempted to destroy the sovereignty of the Cherokee Nation.
Hopefully, the reader will connect the dots of history to gain a better understanding of what it means to be a Cherokee in the 21st century.
"Cherokee National Treasures: In Their Own Words"
The Cherokee National Treasure award has currently been bestowed to ninety-four artisans since its inception in 1988 by the Cherokee Nation and the Cherokee National Historic Society.
In the pages of this book you will find stories as told by the artist themselves, family, and friends that help not only showcase their craft, but also their inspirations. You'll see basketry, pottery, weavings, woodwork, and more.
These artists help preserve and perpetuate Cherokee life, values, and art by being educators, advisors, and supporters of Cherokee art to ensure that both art and skill are not lost.
