Sider speciﬁcally deals with the relationship between ethnohistory and cultural identity and the way in which Native-American people actively produce their own histories and cultural boundaries. What these writers share is recognition of the historical constraints of dominant ideologies on Native-American identity formation, balanced with an emphasis on Native-American agency. I follow the lead of these authors by emphasizing both ideological domination and resistance as it relates to the “racial formation” of Cherokee identities (Gilroy 1987, Omi and Winant 1994).
Identity and a complex of clan possessions, which ranged from land and insignia to customs and prayers, descended from mothers” (1997: 27). Because of the enduring stability of the Cherokee clan system, there was no such thing as a “half-breed,” even in the late eighteenth century. 9 The strong matrilineal bonds of the clan system also meant that when Cherokee women married European men and produced Cherokee children, they did not always form lasting relationships with their husbands. 10 Cherokee women were free to choose when and if they wanted to be with a man, what type of man, and for how long (Fogelson 1990: 170).
THEORETICAL DEPARTURES neo-gramscian perspectives on race and resistance As we begin to explore the racial formation of Cherokee identities, it is important to recognize up front that ideological domination and resistance are not distinct categories. They overlap with one another and cannot be divorced from the material and political conditions of lived experience. Traditionally, scholars have viewed power mechanisms within state structures and other economic and material factors as the primary inﬂuences on ideology.
