Cherokee Almanac

Dwight Mission

This month’s Cherokee Almanac looks at the historic Dwight Mission school, which began near Russellville, Arkansas. When the Western Cherokees moved into Indian Territory in the late 1820s, the mission moved with them. Levada Wildcat, one of the last Dwight Mission students, shares her memories of attending school there.
