First Look: The Voices of Our Ancestors

A Chickasaw Storytellers' Series

Experience a first look at "The Voices of Our Ancestors," the second episode of Winter Fire, a Chickasaw Storytellers' Series. The Chickasaw history is an oral history; for centuries, the spoken words of Chickasaw have carried the tribe's stories from one generation to the next. The language was held in Chickasaw families like a precious treasure, and under that language was the cultural glue that bound Chickasaw families to each other. Today, language remains a cultural unifier.
