Book Description Pdin Press. Paperback. Condition: New. David Locklear (illustrator). 128 pages. Hiding In Plain Sight: The Pee Dee Indians After Contact is an ethnohistory of the Pee Dee Indians of the Carolinas. Ethnohistory, first used in Vienna in the 1930s by ethnologist Fritz Roack, is the use of ethnological methods and materials to gain knowledge of the nature and causes of change in a culture. This definition, as the ethnohistorian Robert C. Euler explained in 1972, is the basic premise upon which ethnohistorians can base their studies, formulate their methodologies, and construct their hypotheses. The concept and practice of ethnohistory, once largely confined to the United States, is now used throughout the Americas, Africa, and the Caribbean. Usually dealing with small groups that do not have written histories, ethnohistory offers a way of utilizing the rich record of historical experience in the search for the processes of cultural adaptation. The book focuses on the fate of the survivors of the Pee Dee Indian Nation in the eighteen through the early twentieth centuries. The research established a link between the Pee Dee Indians described in the earliest written record to the Leland Grove Baptist Church and the Leyland Grove School in present day Little Rock, South Carolina. The book is a synthetic history of the Pee Dee Indian Nation that will appeal to the intelligent lay reader. As a work of synthesis, this project will draw on the entire body of pertinent scholarship, including primary and secondary sources, to provide an interpretation of the Pee Dee Indian Nations history. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9780615458250
