The Early Chickasaw Homeland: Origins, Boundaries and Society examines the life of Chickasaws in Chikashiyaakni’ tingba’, the original homeland, before their removal to Indian Territory in the first half of the nineteenth century. John P. Dyson draws on his extensive first-hand research and his knowledge of Chickasaw language to add to our understanding of this period of Chickasaw history.

Dyson’s research includes a unique examination of Chickasaw language terms, some of which were well known to pre-removal Chickasaws, but have since became obsolete to the modern Chickasaw speaker. Through this study of Native language, Dyson provides unique insight into the homeland’s true territorial boundaries, place-names, and the social structure of the Chickasaws who lived there.
