The Cherokee Diaspora 

Author Talk Gregory Smithers
Thursday, November 19 @ 7pm

The Cherokee are one of the largest Native American tribes in the United States, with more than three hundred thousand people across the country claiming tribal membership and nearly one million people internationally professing to have at least one Cherokee Indian ancestor. In this revealing history of Cherokee migration and resettlement, Gregory Smithers uncovers the origins of the Cherokee diaspora and explores how communities and individuals have negotiated their Cherokee identities, even when geographically removed from the Cherokee Nation headquartered in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.

Gregory D. Smithers is associate professor of history at Virginia Commonwealth University and author of numerous books and articles about Native American and African American history.
