Product Description

The original text of “Red Man’s Origin” appeared in the Indian Chieftain, a Vinita, Oklahoma newspaper, in 1892.  Thanks to the Oklahoma Historical Society this document has been preserved.  There is nothing “more original” or “more authentic” or “anterior” to “Red Man’s Origin” – not in fixed form.  No version of the story has been recorded in Cherokee, only what was recreated from the English by Wesley Proctor back into Cherokee many years later.
