Publisher Comments:

The story of the Chickasaw Nation is one of survival, persistence, triumph, achievement, and beauty. It is the story of a people determined to not only survive — but to prosper and live well. Built with this fundamental ideal, Chickasaw government stands on a foundation that serves its people with the ebb and flow of history's events. It is a chronicle of unsurpassed natural splendor and spiritual connectivity to the land that can never be permanently separated from the hearts of Chickasaws. It is a collective mind-set and determination rooted in community and loyalty to family. Like the Hummingbird Warrior, it is ever vigilant, industrious, energetic and adaptable." — Bill Anoatubby, Governor of the Chickasaw Nation. From their homelands (what is now Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Tennessee), to the removal of the Chickasaws to Indian Territory, and to their thriving nation of today, the Chickasaw people represent one of the most resilient cultures in American history. CHICKASAW: UNCONQUERED AND UNCONQUERABLE tells their own incredible story through vivid photography and rich essays. Grounded in their deep devotion to family and community, the Chickasaw's cultural identity is at the root of each individual. Featuring the award-winning photography of David Fitzgerald and essays by Chickasaw writers Jeannie Barbour, American Book Award-winner Amanda Cobb, and Linda Hogan, the Chickasaw's unique history and identity emerge in this authoritative book. Investing in their future while thriving as a nation today continues to make them truly unconquered and unconquerable.
