In this episode, I talk with my good friend Jason Baird Jackson about his new book Yuchi Folklore:Cultural Expression in a Southeastern Native American Community. Jason tells us about the diverse cultural expressions of this often overlooked community. He talks about his collaborative research with the Yuchi, a native people of the South, who now live in Oklahoma.  Jason’s Research methods provides a wonderful example of how historical research and ethnographic field methods complement each other. Jason is the director of the Mathers Museum of World Cultures and an Associate Professor in the Department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology at Indiana University.
