The Berryhill Room – Chickasaw Indians

Chickasaw LadyThe Berryhill Room, located on the main floor, is devoted to the Chickasaws.

A collection of art and documents tell the story of the Chickasaws up until their removal after the Treaty of Pontotoc in 1832.  The Chickasaw lady represents the time period of removal.  A Chickasaw lady from Oklahoma made the drees, doll, and shirt, and named the maiden Issi Eho, which means Deer Woman in Chickasaw.

The artifacts are from the collection of Don Browning and were found in this area.
