The Great Seal of the Choctaw Nation

The Choctaw Legacy

From its early origins with bison and deer meat, leading up to the inclusion of cattle brought to the continent by Europeans in the 15th century, generations of Choctaw families raised animals on their ranches for making their traditional dried meats. By the eve of the Trail of Tears, tribal members owned over 43,000 head of cattle. Finding themselves in Oklahoma, Choctaws took advantage of the Texas Cattle Drives to resupply their livestock and resume their traditional meat-drying methods.
