He begins by sketching its geographical boundariesâa strategy that suggests that a nation is, first and foremost, based in territorial holdings. The bulk of Ridgeâs letter presents the Cherokee Nation in similarly conventional terms: as a territorially based, internally unified polity. Still, Ridge ultimately concludes that adhering to conventional standards of nationhood will not sustain the Cherokee. He argues that âIndian nationsâ fail because â[t]heir Council fires could not be united into one, as the seat of a great empire. It was for strangers to effect this, and necessity now compels the last Remnants to look to it for protectionâ (2410).
