Overview


It has become tradition for Chickasaw governor Bill Anoatubby to open his public addresses with a tribute to the unconquered and unconquerable warriors and to the dynamic women of the Chickasaw Nation. The most prominent contemporary advocacy of the phrase “dynamic woman” is the rigorously judged Chickasaw Nation Dynamic Woman of the Year Award.

Researched and written by Phillip Carroll Morgan and Judy Goforth Parker, Dynamic Chickasaw Women presents biographies of carefully chosen dynamic women from the histories of Indian Removal, Indian Territory, and early Oklahoma statehood. This book demonstrates that the diversity and distinction represented by today’s recipients of that honor are also found in historical counterparts among the dynamic Chickasaw women of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and early twentieth centuries.
