New Age self help book disguised as something Cherokee
September 5, 2018
Written by 2 brothers, Cherokee members of the Eastern Band no doubt, but this book gives scant detail to the actual background and detail of the different Cherokee traditions and ceremonies. For example, I got far more information on the Green Corn dance and the Booger dance from a couple of quick Google searches. The authors have conflated traditions and ceremonies from tribes all across the Americas to promote their own agenda, which is selling books and their bi-annual "Full Circle" gatherings in North Carolina ( $200 per person advance, $250 at the door). If you want New Agey feel good stuff, then buy this book.....but if you are at all interested in anything based on historical accuracy of the Cherokees, you'll be doing what I am doing, and returning the book.
