“Cherokee people say otsaliheliga to express gratitude. It is a reminder to celebrate our blessings and reflect on our struggles- daily, throughout the year, and across the seasons.”

A lovely reflection on the passing of a year reflected in daily activities. Cherokee words throughout the story are accompanied by a pronunciation guide on the same page.

Cherokee “Check” America Singer is the mother of 5 boys and caring for her dying husband.

Living in the Cherokee Nation in the late 1800‘s, Check‘s mixed heritage and her household of white and African American family and staff, mixed with hunting for treasure, murder, and the struggle for national sovereignty make for a fascinating Western inspired by the author‘s family.

Lafferty‘s strength is commendable. She shares her difficult journey that many indigenous women experience. The writing is simple but her story, and what she is doing now, is powerful.
