Storytelling not only preserves Chickasaw history – it unites the Chickasaw people through their common ancestry. The tradition of storytelling connects the Chickasaws of the past with modern-day members of the tribe.
Chickasaw storytellers hold their audiences in the palm of their hands, skillfully weaving their tale, transporting us to another time. Many stories have been passed down for generations. For centuries, storytellers have served as living documents of our history, keepers of the legends and lore, always imparting a valuable lesson in the end.
