Cherokee Nation record book


Date: 1901-1904 | Size: 1 volume(s), 1 volume, 200 p.


A ledger book written entirely in the Cherokee syllabary. In the original cataloging, it was described as a ledger book for a gadugi group. This description may be inaccurate, as it consists of entries indicating people putting money into a community fund or bank or sorts, who borrowed how much, collateral offered, etc. Clear indication of location where it was written is not given. Identification as "Cherokee Nation record book" may have been provided by Raymond Fogelson, who deposited it at APS in 1960, or by a cataloger.
