Historian and author Gregory Smithers discusses his book, The Cherokee Diaspora: An Indigenous History of Migration, Resettlement, and Identity. In his book, Mr. Smithers, an Australian native who identifies as Cherokee, argues that people from Australia to Scotland to the United States self-identify as Cherokee due to forced immigration and imperialism. He uses historical Cherokee records, maps, story-telling, and pictures to explore why a variety of people identify with the Cherokee Nation. close
