Chikasa Stories Volume One Shared Spirit


This illustrated collection of stories, drawn from Chickasaw oral tradition, is the first bilingual book series published by Chickasaw Press. Artfully told in both English and Chickasaw by premier Chickasaw storyteller and tribal elder Glenda Galvan, the collection serves as an introduction to the Chickasaw language, while preserving the storytelling tradition that is so vital to Chickasaw culture.

Presented as children's stories, the collection is brought to life with the whimsical and vibrant illustrations of award-winning Chickasaw artist Jeannie Barbour.  Volume One introduces the kindred spirit Chickasaw people have always shared with animals and nature. Each tale teaches important life lessons and provides an ancient Chickasaw perspective on why things in nature occur the way they do.---from the publisher
