Chickasaw Press

Non-Fiction

Created in response to the basic need of the Chickasaws to own their history, Chickasaw Press—the first Native American tribal press of its kind—was established as an entity of the Chickasaw Nation in 2006.

Chickasaw Press publications enable the tribe to share its rich history and culture with non-Chickasaws and educate Chickasaw Tribal members, thus enhancing relationships with the greater community and creating an understanding of Chickasaw self-governance and sovereignty.

Our Goal

The goal of Chickasaw Press is to preserve, perpetuate, and provide an awareness of Chickasaw history and culture by: generating and publishing research and scholarship about Chickasaw history and culture; making such scholarship accessible to Chickasaw people; exercising “cultural and intellectual sovereignty” by adhering to ethical and culturally appropriate research and publication practices; providing an outlet for Chickasaw authors and scholars.
