Cherokee Culture: Mankiller A Chief And Her People (1993)

Dear Readers, 

This is the coolest autobiography I've read all year, written by the first woman to be elected chief of the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma (Wilma Mankiller served from 1985-1995). I found this while researching my tribe (as my regular readers already know, I'm a sixth generation Cherokee), and Mankiller A Chief And Her People is a truly fascinating window into both Cherokee history and the life of their best-known modern chief.

Yours Truly,

P.S. This is a really awesome trailer from the newly-released (just this month, in fact) documentary, Mankiller, which will hopefully be widely available soon!  Enjoy!
