Join us for an online presentation as we welcome Ms. LaDonna Brown of the Chickasaw Nation for an exploration of Chickasaw’s cultural identity, a society that has been shaped over thousands of years and once called Tennessee home. Brown will discuss how oral histories and the archaeological timeline reveal the history of this ancient people, and share what it means to be a part of the Chickasaw Nation today.
LaDonna Brown is a Tribal Archeologist for the Chickasaw Nation. She earned her master’s in Archeology from the University of Mississippi. She works with the Chickasaw National Cultural Resources Department and has worked in various archaeological sites across the United States. She is a member of the Chickasaw Nation Dance Troupe and makes beaded collars, belts and baskets. She is from the Raccoon clan and a descendent of Puknatubby (Last to Kill) and Emotubby (Up and Kill), warriors of the Chickasaw Nation.
