Project Title
Jackson, Dr. Jason B., Indiana U., Bloomington, IN - To aid research on 'Native American Musical Performance and the Social Organization of Difference in Eastern Oklahoma'

DR. JASON BAIRD JACKSON, Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana, received an award in June 2001 to aid archival and ethnographic field research on the role that social dance, musical performance, and cultural performances more generally, play in the network connecting the Woodland Indian communities of central and eastern Oklahoma into a regional system of exchange. This network, which is built upon practices of reciprocal inter-community visitation at ritual events, provides a framework within which practices and understandings of cultural similarity and difference are negotiated. The research produced an array of data from all the Woodland communities in Oklahoma. Findings are being used in two books currently being completed. The first is a regional study of communal ritual as a site for articulating and understanding local ideas about the past. The second is a book on social dance music examined in its local contexts, as well as in a comparative region-wide perspective. This research has drawn upon methods and theories from regional analysis, network studies, performance theory, and the disciplines of ethnomusicology, folkloristics, and cultural anthropology. The work offers a productive opportunity to reexamine longstanding issues in American Indian ethnology, social organization, ritual studies, and theories of culture and cultural circulation.
