Home Sweet Home, Harpocrates And A Grain Of Salt (Part 4)
Bobcat Logic Show #104 June 13, 2017 Part Four of a Four Part Series dealing with the early history of Texas and the Texas Cherokees. I’m going to shine my light on the backgrounds and doings of some of the non-native peoples who populate the story of the Texas Cherokees. Maybe, by their style of play, choice of gambits and tempo we may guess at the Masters engaged in the actual contest. I had blood on both sides of this struggle and that has taught me not to hate, but rather to learn, to understand and finally, to remember.Being a Texas Cherokee was and is a complicated thing. Feelings run deep, written records are scarce and there were many agendas at play. Cherokee blood has been mixed for four hundred years. This essay is dedicated to my East Texas Cherokee grandmother, Bobbie Grundberg.
