Sharing Oral Histories

Chickasaw elders Ruth Shelley, Suzanne Russell and Ramona Eyachabbe sit down with young Chickasaws and weave stories of their past. As they reminisce around the fire, they share tales of how different things were when they were younger. But these stories don't come without lessons. One of the elder's encouragements to the Chickasaw leaders of tomorrow? Don't forget where you came from. Both Chickasaw youth and elders agree that they are blessed to be a part of the Chickasaw Nation.
