Chickasaw Nation News

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. While all the women featured are Chickasaw, they each come from different backgrounds and educational experiences. Erin Shaw, for example, notes that storytelling is a central aspect of her work.
