Chickasaw Lives

November 15, 2012 | 200 pages

The Chickasaw Lives series reveals the broad spectrum of Chickasaw history and culture as seen through the eyes of the Chickasaw Nation's tribal historian, Richard Green. In 1994 Chickasaw Nation governor Bill Anoatubby encouraged Green to research and write stories about Chickasaw history and people. This fourth volume in the Chickasaw Lives series is the culmination of that project, known as a Chickasaw mosaic. In Chickasaw Lives, Volume Four: Tribal Mosaic, Green presents twenty-six essays in six categories, representing a wide range of topics—from eighteenth and nineteenth century sketches, to books and treasures, and revivals. Readers are treated to stories that include a Chickasaw citizen's struggle with the aftermath of the 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, an exploration of the mystique surrounding the tradition of Chickasaw warriors, and a Chickasaw tribal donation to the United States to help fund the construction of the Washington Monument in the 1800s. The final volume in this important series, Chickasaw Lives, Volume Four: Tribal Mosaic is a uniquely rich book that provides insightful context and perspective for general readers and students of Native American history.
