The story of the Chickasaw Hatchet Women served to inspire the many generations that followed them. As a contemporary Chickasaw artist I look to our history to guide me. This ring, with it’s subtle sun disk detailing, is inspired by the balance and focus it takes to accomplish one's goals and follow one's path.
This ring is cast in sterling silver and antiqued with a high polish to enhance the design details.

The Hatchet Women ~ Indigenous Resistance since 1736
During the French Indian Wars of the 1730s, villages in our southeastern homelands were under attack by French Soldiers looking to take our resources and harm our people. However, they were stopped by Chickasaw women. Armed with hatchets and skilled in combat, these unconquerable women forced the French to retreat.
