The son of Tom Cole, Mason Cole is a Chickasaw who knows the importance of history. He grew up listening to his aunt, legendary storyteller Te Ata, and this helped inspire Mason to educate others about the legacy and history of the Chickasaw Nation. The fact that there were fierce warriors, those that never lost a battle, gets lost upon new generations. But Mason understands the reverence and importance of his ancestors and doesn’t want younger generations to forget this vital information of the past.
His father, Tom, passed on to him the sense of urgency to remind those around him of the ancestral homelands, and the unconquerable Chickasaws.
