    Hello Grandmother,

    We are from the Oklahoma Band. I have just found out a little bit about stickball, pre-european contact dress and after we started trading with the europeans how our dress changed. The redundancy is fine its understandable. I grew up knowing about my choctaw ancestory. Just don't know too much about it because my family grew up in the white world away from our people. I would love to read books, would appreciate the recommendations.

    I am at Ft Knox, KY now stationed with a Cavalry unit as support. I go to Afghanistan next year sometime not sure yet.

    God bless
    Alan

    Where R U now, I see you went to Fort Sill for training, I have Kiowa kin there. One of my grandsons is a Medic in the Corps. He's already completed a tour in the Sandbox, next he'll probably go to Afganistan. In way God bless you and I'll keep you in my prayers.

    Hello, I just saw your post, haven't been on the site for awhile, so I apologize for the delay. Where are your people from, Mississippi or Oklahoma? What have yoiu been told already or have you just found out you have Ndn ancestry, I hate to be redundant. I can recomment some books that are written by Choctaw writers. that cover legends and history.

    bye

    Halito. I saw your posts on the Choctaw Dress thread. I have been looking for information about tradition Choctaw designs, clothing, stories, culture. Things to help me identify with our ancestors. I was just wondering if you could help me learn any of these things. You seem very knowledgeable and as an elder I come to you with respect and a willingness to learn. Yakoke.
