The Memoirs of Robert Youngdeer: Marine, Chief, and Proud American, has just been published by the Museum Press. Copies will be available for sale through the Museum Store.

“We are proud to publish this outstanding work—Cherokee history by a Cherokee author,” said Ken Blankenship, Executive Director of the Museum.  Youngdeer describes growing up in Cherokee, attending boarding school, joining the Marines, and being wounded in at Guadalcanal in World War II, for which he received the Purple Heart.  He became an Army Paratrooper, and then worked as an Indian Policeman on reservations with the Lakota, Choctaw, Apache, Anishinabe, Inuit, and more.  From 1983-1987 he served as Principal Chief of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians.  

“Principal Chief Youngdeer has produced an extraordinary history for the Cherokee people through the telling of his life history. The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians has been blessed with exceptional leaders like Robert, and now our community has the opportunity to share his story,” commented Michell Hicks, Principal Chief of EBCI.   Publication of the book was made possible by a grant from the Cherokee Preservation Foundation. 

The book is available in softcover, with 464 pages, thirty-seven photos, and an index. It retails for $25. For wholesale information or review copies contact the Museum.
