Researched and written by Phillip Carroll Morgan, with an introduction by Judy Goforth Parker, Dynamic Chickasaw Women presents the lives of women who had an impact on Chickasaw history during the periods of removal from the homelands, difficulties in Indian Territory, and the tumult of Oklahoma’s early statehood days. Some of the women are widely known and celebrated among members of the Chickasaw Nation today, while the stories of some provide surprising revelations.
