An artist’s look at the elders of the Chickasaw Nation.
They Know Who They Are: Elders of the Chickasaw Nation is by Mike and Martha Larsen of Oklahoma.
In 2004, the artist approached Chickasaw Nation leaders with an idea to interview Chickasaw elders – living sages of his own tribe. He wanted to learn their stories and create a series of paintings while these individuals were still living. His wife, Martha, worked with him on the project and served as photographer. This book is the result of the Larsens’ journey as they connected with the elders and their families.
Featured in this book are: Leerene Frazier, Catherine Willmond, Pearl Carter Scott, Sim Greenwood, Pauline Walker, Charlie Carter, Minnie Shields, Ben and Juanita Nail, Erie Cravatt, Emily Dickerson, Flora Perry, Geraldine Greenwood, and Governor Overton James. Also, Lillie Ward, Jack Ray, Haskell Alexander, Sophie Perry, Underwood Brothers, Dean, Jeannie and Pat (The Three Graces), Robert Greenwood, Larry Hawkins, Hattie Harjo, Suzanne Russell and Marcy and Samuel Alexander.
Larsen is in the Chickasaw Nation Hall of Fame.
