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.
