Congratulations to Jasmine Leonard! Her question about how Chickasaw houses were constructed in the Homeland before Removal was selected to be featured in the “Ask a Chickasaw” segment of the Spring 2019 issue of Chokma Magazine. Great question, Jasmine! Your Chickasaw Press T- shirt is on its way.

If you have a question about a Chickasaw topic, please send it to [email protected] with “Ask a Chickasaw” in the subject line. If your question is chosen to be featured in Chokma, we’ll send you a Chickasaw Press T-shirt.

Most popular fiction novels come in at the 250 to 475-page range. That’s somewhere between 70,000 and 90,000 words. White Dog Press released its first novel, Anompolichi: The Wordmaster by Phillip Morgan, in 2014. It comes in at around 80,000 words and 291 pages. It would take a reader about 4.5 to 5 hours to read through Anompolichi: The Wordmaster without stopping. Could you make it through our book in that amount of time?

In the book, Herrington shares his passion for space travel and provides a glimpse into his astronaut training and mission to the International Space Station. The book includes an English to Chickasaw vocabulary list with space-related terms.

Looked at the binding on a book lately? No one ever really thinks about it, but the binding is what literally keeps your book together. There are many different methods of binding, and the decision of which one to use is often influenced by page count and other factors. Perfect bound, case bound, and saddle stitch are popular methods. Perfect binding is used for most paperback books and involves gluing the pages together. Case binding, common in hardcover books, is a mixture of sewing and gluing the pages to bind them. Finally, saddle stitch, normally used for small booklets, uses staples to hold the pages together.

We need your questions! In each issue of Chokma Magazine, our “Ask a Chickasaw” feature answers a question about a Chickasaw topic from people just like you. How do you play chunkey?

If your question is published in the magazine, you’ll receive a cool t-shirt from Chickasaw Press.

Check out this glowing review of our title, C is For Chickasaw, from the blog Devoted Mommy of 3!
“While reinforcing their knowledge of the alphabet and including Native American history, you’re combining two classes in one great book.”
Click to read the full review.
Purchase here Chickasawpress.com or drop by our Chickasaw Press bookstore in Ada!

SYNOPSIS: The award-winning children’s book C is for Chickasaw by Wiley Barnes walks children of all ages through the letters of the alphabet as it teaches elements of Chickasaw history, language, and culture. Each topic is introduced by two lines of rhyming verse, followed by additional information explaining its place or importance in Chickasaw culture. Colorful illustrations familiarize readers with the style of Southeastern Native American art, and a question and activity section in the back provides a springboard for further discussion.
