Three men I deeply admire — the late Dr. Duane King, Dr. Neil Morton and Dr. Cherokees persevere because our values and traditions are deeply rooted in us. They have enabled us to withstand every dark chapter and celebrate every positive milestone throughout time, and today we are stronger than ever before. That history is an important part of who we are as a people, and this book provides an unprecedented opportunity to share our story.

Cherokee Indians: Selected full-text books and articles
A wonderful contribution to literatures in the history of marriage, race, and Native American history. In an election that made headlines around the world, a majority of Cherokee voters chose to eject from their tribe the descendants of the African American freedmen Cherokee Indians had once enslaved. Because of the unique sovereign status of Indian nations in the United States, legal membership in an Indian nation can have real economic benefits. In addition to money, the issues brought forth in this election have racial and cultural roots going back before the Civil War. Race and the Cherokee Nation examines how leaders of the Cherokee Nation fostered a racial ideology through the regulation of interracial marriage. By defining and policing interracial sex, nineteenth-century Cherokee lawmakers preserved political sovereignty, delineated Cherokee identity, and established a social hierarchy. Moreover, Cherokee conceptions of race and what constituted interracial sex differed from those of blacks and whites.
