    schema:description ""Examining the legacy of racial mixing in Indian Territory through the land and lives of two families, one of Cherokee Freedman descent and one of Muscogee Creek heritage, Darnella Davis's memoir writes a new chapter in the history of racial mixing on the frontier. It is the only book-length account of the intersections between the three races in Indian Territory and Oklahoma written from the perspective of a tribal person and a freedman. The histories of these families, along with the starkly different federal policies that molded their destinies, offer a powerful corrective to the historical narrative. From the Allotment Period to the present, their claims of racial identity and land in Oklahoma reveal inequalities that still fester more than 100 years on. The details of their quest for prosperity, and dignity provide a trove of fact-based evidence that is sorely lacking in much racial discourse. Carrying their legacy into the present invites a fresh perspective on just who we think we are. It offers a provocative opportunity to unpack our current racial discourse and ask ourselves, Who are "we" really?"--"@en ;
