More Description

The Rich Culture and History of the Choctaw Tribe - and the Remarkable Mississippi Band...The Choctaw Indians are one of the oldest tribes in the Americas, dating from the era when the woolly mammoth roamed the Southeast. They are the native inhabitants of the area now comprising the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi. The Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians still continues to speak their own language, maintain their unique culture, and live on their indigenous land in Mississippi. In this beautifully researched book, Dr. Kennith York draws upon oral traditions, historical documents, and accounts of observers and scholars to illuminate the prehistory, culture, language, and history of the Chahta Okla People. Join this resilient, creative, and memorable band as they survive the Spanish terrorist attack of 1540, the French and British invasion of the 1700s, the US Government Policy of Indian Removal of 1830, the Great Depression of the 1930s, the Civil Rights Era of the 1960s, and the current economic recession, which threatens the survival of 10,300 Choctaws. Recognized as community leaders in community and economic development through business, education, health care, gaming, and tourism, the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians stand out as a shining example of a people striving to embrace their heritage while working within the constraints placed upon them by the US government. This valuable book provides an update to John Swanton's work on the Choctaw Indians.
