This article examines how the Cherokee Nation, especially its mothers, tried to adapt to the cultural changes forced on them by white Americans during the late 18th and early 19th century while also maintaining their own traditional culture. The efforts by Christian missionaries to 'civilize' the Cherokee people are also discussed and the matrilineal structure and child raising practices of Cherokee society.
