First, Brad Clonch and Quin Tran take us to the Chickasaw Cultural Center to experience “Aapisa’ Nachi,” a new exhibit featuring handmade Chickasaw quilts. Next, we get an inside look at a Chickasaw community art class, where participants learn the art of finger weaving belts and other items. And in a new book called “Chickasaw Women Artisans,” an art historian explores the work of female Chickasaws and how it impacts their heritage. The book shows how the talents of such artists as Margaret Roach Wheeler and Erin Shaw emerged and shares how the individuals became influential in Chickasaw culture. To purchase the book, click here. And finally, we learn about Chokma Chickasaw magazine, a publication that helps connect readers to the tribe.
