Summary: The journal of the Brainerd Mission is an indispensable source for understanding Cherokee culture & history during the early nineteenth century. The interdenominational mission was located in the heart of Cherokee country near present day Chattanooga. For seven years the Brainerd missionaries kept a journal describing their lives & those of their charges. Although the journal has long been recognized as a significant primary document, it was not fully transcribed or made widely available until now. The journal entries provide a richly textured & sensitive look at Cherokee life & American missionary activities during the early nineteenth century. They shed new light on the daily lives & personalities of individual Cherokees, as well as on poorly understood aspects of Cherokee politics & religion. The journal provides interesting ethnographic details concerning Cherokee council meetings, ceremonial occasions, gender relations, & the internal social & political tensions among families. Of equal interest are the complex & often conflicted attitudes of the missionaries, who were interested in Cherokee traditional culture but simultaneously worked to change it.
