The Color of the Land

This chapter draws on the history and changing fortunes of one Creek family, the Haynes–Lerblance–Cox lineage, to argue that the issues of property, race, and nationhood that ran through political and class conflict in the region in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century are not relegated to the past or to Oklahoma, but continue to animate American life today. It opines that the history of the Creek Nation and east–central Oklahoma can compel a rethinking of the categories of race and nation, their relation to each other, and their relation to class and economic conflict.

Keywords:   Creek, Haynes–Lerblance–Cox, lineage, property, race, nationhood, Oklahoma, American
