Chickasaw Nation: First Encounter

First Encounter explores the actions taken by Chickasaws in 1540 during their first contact with Europeans. The documentary highlights the encounters, struggles, and perseverance of the Chickasaw people throughout Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto's attempted conquest. It was the first European contact for the Chickasaw, but perhaps the most important and set the standard by which the tribe remained for centuries and remains today - "unconquered and unconquerable." Produced by Chickasaw Nation Productions.
