They Say the Wind is Red

The Alabama Choctaw Lost in Their Own Land
The past and the present of the Southeastern Indian tribe



Jackie asked me a few days ago to remove this site, I just couldn't bring myself to do that, so I have changed the page to reflect her needs at this time but will continue to let others know about her books and the great work she does for the Indian Community. Jackie has been a true friend to me and provided many articles and information for Native American Genealogy.  We all wish her good health and happiness as she walks a new path in life.

For any of you who haven't read They Say the Wind is Red, you may still order from New South Books or at your local book store.
