Chickasaw Support on the Natchez Trace: Native Patriots

Lisa Billy

Oklahoma state legislator and Chickasaw Lisa Billy returns to describe the historic Natchez Trace. The trail spans over 400 miles and was important in the growth and development of the Chickasaw tribe and the young American nation. The two groups learned to work together and rely on each other, as the Chickasaws generously granted the Americans use of the ancient path.
