Description

When Cherokee Dance and Drama was first published in 1951, this description of the dances of a conservative Eastern Cherokee band was hailed as a scholarly contribution that could not be duplicated, Frank G. Speak and Leonard Broom had achieved the close and sustained interaction that ethnological fieldwork requires. Their principal informant, Will West Long, upheld the unbroken ceremonial tradition of the Big Cove band, near Cherokee, North Carolina. Describes the movements and meanings of some of the traditional dances and ceremonies of the Eastern Cherokee.
