The forced relocation of fifteen thousand Cherokee to Oklahoma nearly two centuries ago left them in a foreign landscape. Coping with loss and new economic challenges, the Cherokee united under a new constitution and exploited the Victorian affinity for decorative crafts. Cherokee women had always created patterned baskets for everyday use and trade, and soon their practical work became lucrative items of beauty. Adapting the tradition to the new land, the industrious weavers transformed Oklahoma’s vast natural resources into art that aided their survival. The Civil War found the Cherokee again in jeopardy, but resilient, they persevered and still thrive today. Author and Cherokee citizen Karen Coody Cooper presents the story of this beautiful legacy. For more information, contact Catherine Foreman-Gray, Cherokee Nation History and Preservation Officer, at Catherine-Gray@cherokee.org. Presenter: Karen Coody Cooper, Cherokee citizen and author

Our Lunch & Learn lecture series back in November was a hit so we've decided to continue them on a monthly basis. Cherokee artist, Lisa Rutherford, will kick off our monthly series this Thursday, January 21, at 12:00pm in the Osiyo Training Room, 17725 S Muskogee Ave, Tahlequah, OK (behind the Cherokee Nation Gift Shop). Lisa will present on Southeast Textiles and 18th Century Trade Era Cherokee Clothing. Lisa will give an overview of her Smithsonian research, including a slide show of Cherokee objects she viewed while there. Presentation is free and open to the public. Attendees are invited to bring a sack lunch and join us. For those unable to attend, the presentation will be live-streamed and archived on Cherokee Nation's YouTube channel. About Lisa Rutherford: Lisa Rutherford (Cherokee Nation) lives on a cattle ranch in Cherokee County and worked in Cherokee Nation tribal administration for many years before becoming a full-time artist. Her passion is 18th century art and history, and she has been a living history interpreter at Colonial Williamsburg, VA; the National Museum of the American Indian; and other venues throughout the southeast United States. She is a seasonal interpreter at Diligwa Village at the Cherokee Heritage Center. Active in many art forms, Lisa has been a potter since 2005 and is perhaps best known for her pottery, specializing in ancestral pottery with hand-dug clay and fired in a pit fire. Rutherford is equally well known for her textile work, including feather capes which were described by Hernando DeSoto in 1540 and still worn by Cherokee women in the mid-18th century. The capes are made on a hand-tied plant fiber net, which is custom made to fit the client. She makes 18th century clothing, moccasins, does southeast appliqué beadwork, and is a novice painter. Her work is in the collections of the Smithsonian Museum's National Museum of the American Indian, the Eiteljorg Museum of the American Indian and Western Art, and the Fred Jones, Jr. Museum at the University of Oklahoma.
