Growing Up Indian in a Southern Context

Growing Up Indian in a Southern Context

(p.7) 1 Growing Up Indian in a Southern Context
We Will Always Be Here

This chapter sets the stage for subsequent chapters by including pieces that strike a balance between fond childhood memories connected to family, culture, and place and painful reflections of racial discrimination and the barriers that Jim Crow policies placed on Indian people, particularly in the area of education. These narratives fill an important gap in the dominant history of the South as they demonstrate how Indian people not only survived in a region generally overlooked as having a significant Native population following the Indian Removal period of the 1830s, but also the various strategies and accommodations they made to navigate a racial system that didn’t formally account for them.

Keywords:   Jim Crow, childhood memories, racial discrimination, education
