Editorial Reviews

Review

[A] sweeping, evenhanded study. . . . Naylor has pieced together a sophisticated portrait of slavery in the Cherokee Nation.--Canadian Journal of History

Provocative and impressive . . . elucidate[s] a highly significant area of study within Indian slave-holding communities. . . . Highly recommend[ed].--Georgia Historical Quarterly

A rich and textured glimpse of life, work, love and loss in Indian Territory.--West Virginia History

An outstanding job of illustrating the intricate sociopolitical interactions between bondsmen and their Cherokee masters. . . . Helps illuminate the history of African Americans in the Cherokee Nation. . . . An excellent scholarly work to aid in researching African Cherokees from slavery through the turn of the twentieth century.--North Carolina Historical Review

Naylor nimbly works with sparse and sometimes problematic evidence (such as the Works Progress Administration's slave narratives) to render a sensitive and sophisticated telling of hardship and suffering, overt and everyday resistance, acceptance and disfranchisement, and adaptation and exclusion. . . . An enormous accomplishment.--The Journal of American History

A welcome contribution to one of the more important trends in the historiography of southeastern Indians: the recent expansion of scholarship on race, slavery, and the struggles of freedmen within the Five Tribes.--American Historical Review

[A] remarkable book. . . . Not only well-written history but timely as well. . . . A must read for anyone researching Native Americans, ethnicity, or race relations.--Great Plains Quarterly

Will take its rightful place as a significant contribution to the topic of nineteenth-century African-Indian relationships.--H-Net Reviews

Offers a thorough and descriptive history of the people who were at the center of this controversy. . . . Naylor skillfully mines the Work Progress Administration collection of ex-slave narratives to recreate the lives of people of African descent in the nineteenth-century Cherokee Nation.--The Journal of Southern History

A fine book taken in the spirit of reawakening an interest in an oft-neglected area of African American and Cherokee history. . . . Draws on an impressive array of sources. . . . Provides a timely record of African participation in the nation.--Chronicles of Oklahoma

Review

Celia Naylor has produced a bold, well-written book on a highly provocative and critically important topic, the story of African American people who were enslaved not by Europeans but by Native Americans. The work is bold and original because it does not shy away from two central contradictions: that slaves and their descendants can partially identify with their former masters, and that people who have experienced racial prejudice themselves can adopt racial prejudice against others. Anyone interested in the comparative history of slavery, western history, identity politics, and the intersections of race, culture, and nationalism will count this work as essential reading.--Circe Sturm, University of Oklahoma|In this bold and soulful book, Celia Naylor accomplishes something novel--a historical survey of slavery and emancipation in the Cherokee Nation from the perspective of enslaved blacks and freedpeople themselves. Her penetrating analysis of this unknown 'world of bondage' reveals both the close cultural ties and harsh material realities that characterized the 'peculiar institution' in Indian Territory.--Tiya Miles, author of Ties That Bind: The Story of an Afro-Cherokee Family in Slavery and Freedom
