As with all indigenous cultures around the world, Choctaw stories are representative of why stories found in most Native American tribes.
Why stories sought to express the significance and meaning of the world around them. The natural elements, the traits and behavior of animals, and explanations of how things came to be are the basis of oral storytelling passed down through the generations. Many stories were open-ended and taught cultural values, manners and tradition.
These ageless stories are given to you to share with new generations of Choctaw storytellers.
You hold in your hand a shuka anumpa (pig tale) that has been enjoyed by generations of Choctaw children. Read, learn and appreciate this piece of Choctaw culture.
