Three Generations: Speaking Chickasaw

JoAnn Ellis, Johnna Walker & Nacobi Walker

As a Native speaker, JoAnn Ellis is vital to the Chickasaw Nation. People come to her for translations, for instructions or simply to hear the language. Her daughter and granddaughter are also learning the language, doing their part to conserve culture and preserve what's unique about the Chickasaw people.
