A Choctaw Anthology II.
Anderson, Jane, Ed.; And Others
The collection of nine papers provides information on the history and culture of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians. Written by college-bound Choctaw high school students, the papers present topics on the lives of two Choctaw chiefs, Apukshunnubbee and Mushulatubbee; traditional Choctaw ceremonies (wedding and funeral customs, and social dances); Choctaw games and competition (stickball, chungkee, rabbit sticks, and blowguns); Choctaw arts and crafts (basketry, beading, sticks and stickballs, blowguns, and drum making); Choctaw health and medicine; Treaty of Doak's Stand; Treaty of Washington City; events leading to the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek; and an introduction to the Choctaw Tribal Code. Two of the papers contain questionnaires and responses of Choctaw high school students, tribal employees and community members concerning their knowledge of Choctaw ceremonies and the three treaties affecting their tribe. Black and white photographs, maps, and treaties appropriately illustrate each paper. (ERB)
