Cherokee women wielded significant individual and political power, and history demonstrates that indigenous women frequently bore the greater workload, both inside and outside the home. During the French and Indian War, Cherokee women resisted a chief's authority, owned family households, were skilled artisans, produced plentiful crops, mastered trade negotiations, and prepared chiefs' feasts. Cherokee culture was unfortunately lost when the Cherokee Nation began imitating the American form of governance to gain political favor, and white colonists reduced indigenous women's power.

This book recounts a small portion of long-standing Cherokee traditions and their rich histories. It aims to characterize Cherokee and indigenous women as independent and strong individuals through feminist and historical perspectives. Readers will find that these women were far ahead of their time and held their own in many remarkable ways.
