Cherokee Cooklore: Preparing Cherokee Foods
This is a reprint of a step-by-step demonstration guide with photographs of Cherokee elder, Aggie Lossiah, teaching Cherokee children how to make Cherokee bean bread. Aggie tells the youngsters, “I'll show you how bean bread ought to be made. How my old Cherokee granny made it when we lived in that cave of the Tennessee River…” Aggie was the granddaughter of Principal Chief John Ross who built a trading post on the Tennessee River known as “Ross’s Landing” and was a strong advocate against Cherokee removal from their traditional homelands. While primarily a “how to” book, traditional knowledge and Cherokee history is incorporated throughout the pages.
