Dowd writes that McGillivray owed his frontier influence to his “skill as a mediator between European powers,” but “despite this role” he “retained his tribal identity” and “remained dedicated to preserving [Creek] autonomy and economic security” (Dowd, 1992: 91–92). The Cherokee Nation also contained a number of influential mixed-blood leaders who helped shape the southern borderlands, including Chickamauga resistant leader John Watts and the Overhill town’s “beloved woman” Nancy Ward. In a published collection of lectures from Mercer University’s Lamar Lectures series entitled Mixed Blood Indians: Racial Construction in the Early South, Theda Perdue also examines the position and “participation” of métis and other “non-Indians” in Amerindian society and the “construction of the racial category of mixed blood” (Perdue, 2003: x).
Henretta concedes that early American settlers did strive to accumulate landed wealth, but other considerations were also at play, including the financial protection of the families and sheer survival. James A. Henretta’s historical contention that the early American backcountry went through a transition from moral to a market economy is echoed by a number of scholars. Alan Kulikoff’s article “The Transition to Capitalism in Rural America” also supports the notion that America’s backcountry economies underwent an evolution from a non-commercial economy to a commercial economy.
Mooney’s Cherokee scholarship has recently been combined into a single volume, entitled James Mooney’s History, Myths, and Sacred Formulas of the Cherokee (1992). The volume is essentially divided into two sections: a brief history of the Cherokee and a collection of Cherokee myths and stories. Mooney’s “Historical Sketch of the Cherokee” offers a reader a remarkable blend of linguistic, cultural, and historical analysis that forms the basis for much of the Cherokee scholarship that followed. Mooney’s years among the Cherokee at the close of the nineteenth century allowed the researcher to amass an enormous amount of invaluable orally transmitted materials at a time when the Cherokee’s “old ways” were rapidly disappearing.
