Abstract:

Focusing on the Native American Cherokee people and South Carolina settlers, The Dividing Paths traces their interactions from 1680, when Charleston was established until 1785, when the Cherokees first signed a treaty with the United States. Hatley retrieves the unfamiliar dimensions of a world in which Native Americans were at the center of Southern geopolitics and in which radically different social assumptions about the obligations of power, the place of women, and the use of the land influenced the formative cultural psychology of the colonial South.

Weaving together firsthand accounts, maps, journals, and letters to give a human reality to the facts of war, politics, and the economy, Hatley pinpoints the revolutionary decade - from the little known but decisive Cherokee war through the American Revolution itself - in which both societies struggled over their own identities. Rather than focusing on the Cherokees and Carolinians separately, The Dividing Paths looks at contacts, encounters, exchanges, intersections: their mutual history. Hatley argues that Cherokee and colonial histories cannot be understood separately - that they are inextricably linked - and that the origins of distinctive features of Native American and colonial ethnicity, of seemingly unrelated twists in the political history of each society, are rooted in this encounter.

A pivotal intercultural chapter in the history of the South, The Dividing Path will interest general readers and specialists in Southern, Native American, colonial, revolutionary, and women's history alike.
