The Chickasaw Indians

The Chickasaw Indians

ORGANIZATION

The Chickasaw Indian Nation was made up of great warriors in historic times. Known as the “Spartans of the lower Mississippi Valley,” they never lost a war on their homelands. Despite their reputation as skilled warriors, the Chickasaws were a peaceful people throughout American history. The Chickasaws sided with the British during the French and Indian war, and by doing so are credited by some historians as making America an English-speaking nation. Prior to their resettlement to Indian Territory in 1837, the Chickasaws had extensive trade networks, an intricate system of government, and even bred their own breed of horses. Today, the Chickasaw Nation is headquartered in Oklahoma where the tribe continues to practice its ancient traditions and culture. The endurance of the Chickasaw people and culture proves that they truly are an “unconquered and unconquerable” people.
