“The Cherokee Perspective [provides] a rare glimpse inside Cherokee culture and society and a more complete view of how Cherokees see themselves, their past, their future, and their relationship with the non-Indian world. The Cherokee Perspective contains material about contemporary social problems, education, history, current events, dances, cooking, arts and crafts, legends, and outstanding individuals. “The Cherokee Perspective presents the diversity which exists in Cherokee society today and the understanding and tolerance on which Cherokee society traditionally was based. I applaud its publication.”—Theda Purdue
