Cherokee Practice, Missionary Intentions: Literacy Learning among Early Nineteenth-Century Cherokee Women
Moulder, M. Amanda
College Composition and Communication, v63 n1 p75-97 Sep 2011
This article discusses how archival documents reveal early nineteenth-century Cherokee purposes for English-language literacy. In spite of Euro-American efforts to depoliticize Cherokee women's roles, Cherokee female students adapted the literacy tools of an outsider patriarchal society to retain public, political power. Their writing served Cherokee national interests and demonstrated female students' concerns with the fate of the Cherokee people. (Contains 20 notes.)
