Choctaw Women in a Chaotic World by Michelene E. Pesantubbee (PB, 2005)
Content Description: Subtitle: The Clash of Cultures in the Colonial Southeast. Prior to European contact, the Choctaw's matrilineal society supported women's contributions in all areas of community life. Evidence of Choctaw women's participation in religious and political concerns, however, declined drastically early in the eighteenth century. The author traces the changes in women's roles in Choctaw society from the late 1600's to the mid 1700's during the French colonial period in the Lower Mississippi Valley.
