Hello, I am the branch supervisor of the Ridgecrest Branch Library. We have received several comments on a program with Mrs. Durvin scheduled here for Nov. 9. I have spoken with her about this matter and she freely admits that she is not on the official Cherokee rolls and does not have a card. We understand that there can be strong differences of opinion on such matters. She plans to talk about her own life experiences and has spoken in the community on other occasions. Thank you for your comments, Marsha Lloyd Ridgecrest Branch Library
Cherokees Demand Truth from Carolyn Emerson Durvin (aka "Little Deer Durvin")? Carolyn Emerson Durvin was exposed as an ethnic fraud. I'd hoped that would be enough to make her rethink her behavior, but it wasn't. She is scheduled to do Cherokee storytelling at the Ridgecrest Branch Library on November 9, 2013.
As if it isn't bad enough she is going around pretending to be Cherokee when she isn't, she is also spreading a false Cherokee history in order to allow herself to fit into that history. Enough is enough. Please contact the Ridgecrest Branch Library and let them know Carolyn Emerson Durvin, aka Little Deer Durvin, is an ethnic fraud, and that you as a Cherokee, an American Indian, or an American citizen are offended that a library would allow a fabricated history to be taught to children. Ask them to cancel her speaking engagement.
You may contact Ridgecrest Branch Library through the following ways -
Phone - (760) 384-5870
Or contact the Kern County Library (Ridgecrest is a branch of this library) by filling out this "Contact form."
Those are my thoughts for today.
Thanks for reading.
