James Mooney was a notable anthropologist who lived for several years among the Cherokee. In 1885 he became connected with the Bureau of American Ethnology at Washington, D.C. He complied a tribal list containing 3,000 titles. His most notable work was his ethnographic study of the Ghost Dance, a widespread religious movement among various Native American culture groups that ended in 1890 with a bloody confrontation against the United States Army at Wounded Knee, South Dakota.
