Recipient of a 1995 Critics' Choice Award of the American Educational Studies Association

Established by the Cherokee Nation in 1851 in present-day eastern Oklahoma, the nondenominaional Cherokee Female Seminary was one of the most important schools in the history of American Indian education. Devon Mihesuah explores its curriculum, faculty, administration, and educational philosophy.

"[An] important work. . . . It tells the fascinating and occasionally poignant story of the Cherokee Female Seminary, which enrolled its first class of 'Rosebuds,' as the seminarians called themselves, in 1851." -- Choice

"I recommend it to any serious student of the Cherokee people." -- Robert J. Conley, author of Mountain Windsong

"Of the many books about Cherokee history, few deal with the issue of acculturation in the post-removal period and none so effectively as Devon Mihesuah's Cultivating the Rosebuds." -- Nancy Shoemaker, Western Historical Quarterly

"Required reading for anyone remotely interested in the history of Native American education." -- David W. Adams, History of Education Quarterly
