The Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma is actually not made up of only Cherokees. As Brice Obermeyer’s book shows, some other tribes fall within the Cherokee Nation thanks to various historical reasons, although some have sought to become independent of the Cherokee Nation.

Obermeyer explores how the Delaware Tribe came to be under the jurisdiction of the Cherokee Nation following their removal from Kansas to the Indian Territory in 1867. The Delaware are not similar in any way to the Cherokee. Many Delawares have held onto their history, culture, and customs, as well as their own government. Obermeyer chronicles the continued Delaware quest for independence from the Cherokee Nation. Recommended to those interested in Native American self-determination.
