Chickasaw artist Mike Larsen and his wife, Martha Larsen, again team up to offer perspectives on the varied lives of twenty-three tribal elders whose lives encompass a broad sweep of experience. Proud to Be Chickasaw presents Mike Larsen’s expressive paintings, each accompanied by a biographical piece written by author and artist Jeannie Barbour, which together capture the spirit of the elders, the most revered members of Chickasaw and American Indian society.
