Abstract

West Virginia History, N.S. 5, No.1, Spring 2011 to water," prohibition, and medicine (among others discussed in chapter three). Although the ceremonial complex has undergone significant change, it nevertheless continues as "a distinct and enduring cultural element" (144). One of the more original and convincing premises of the book is found within chapter four, which highlights the Cherokee ball game in the twentieth century. Zogry finds that some Eastern Band members have strategically adopted non-Cherokee cultural elements, such as Plains-style headdresses, not only to market their community to tourists but also to safeguard "traditional behaviors and beliefs" (154). Anetso reflects this strategy, Zogry notes, in that Cherokee people for more than two hundred years have played the ball game "for the benefit of visitors, as tourist events" (159). In doing so, they have selectively presented elements of anetso to outsiders, while they privately performed other ceremonial practices to uphold their traditions. This book is both conceptually clear and culturally sensitive. Zogry takes seriously his role as a scholar and ethnographer. As a guest among the Eastern Band and friend to certain tribal members, Zogry protects the identity of consultants and relates Cherokee perspectives in a balanced way. Perhaps
