Roots of Our Renewal

In chapter 5, “The Spirit of This Land,” I discuss current attempts by the Cherokee Nation government to deal with the paradoxes of Cherokee state-building. I describe how Principal Chief Chad Smith’s administration made significant attempts to bridge the gap between the central government and Cherokee communities, and the obstacles that arose in the process. Such obstacles were manifested both in the structure of the current Cherokee Nation government and in the process by which the tribal administration sought to carry out its goals.
