Lessons from the Cherokee Print Shop: How Printers Used Christian Pamphlets to Fight Indian Removal
April 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Join the Oklahoma Center for the Humanities for an enlightening conversation with Sonia Hazard, Ph.D., about her work on two editions of a Cherokee-language evangelical tract titled Poor Sarah.
The first of these tracts originates in 1833 and was published by Cherokees in New Echota, Cherokee Nation. The second is from 1843 and was published in Park Hill, Indian Territory, after the Trail of Tears. Hazard will explore the differences between these two tracts of Poor Sarah, explain why these differences exist, and discuss the Cherokee printers’ own work at recovery and renewal post-removal.
The event is scheduled for April 14th, 7p-8:30p in Tyrell Hall with a simultaneous Zoom stream. For in-person attendance, mask wearing is encouraged.
