Gender Is, As Gender Does: A Study Merging Cherokee Women’s Autonomy and Gender Performativity

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper presents a gender analysis of Cherokee women’s history delineated through Cherokee women’s agricultural management, sexual freedom, and political sovereignty. These examples will be employed to locate gender performativity within the Cherokee tribe before the United States government removed them from their homelands in 1838-1839. The analysis will provide an explication of how a particularly strong form of femaleness continues to this day within the Cherokee tribe resisting the continual colonizing attempts from people of European descent, and struggling politically for all Cherokees to live in a space which is not usurped by hegemonic forces of whiteness.
