Snowbird Cherokees

Snowbird Cherokees

Ratings: (0)|Views: 1,171 |Likes:
This is the first ethnographic study of Snowbird, North Carolina, a remote mountain community of Cherokees who are regarded as simultaneously the most traditional and the most adaptive members of the entire tribe. Through historical research, contemporary fieldwork, and situational analysis, Sharlotte Neely explains the Snowbird paradox and portrays the inhabitants’ daily lives and culture. At the core of her study are detailed examinations of two expressions of Snowbird’s cultural self-awareness—its ongoing struggle for fair political representation on the tribal council and its yearly Trail of Tears Singing, a gathering point for all North Carolina and Oklahoma Cherokees concerned with cultural conservation.
