S2, E1, P1: Rachael Youngman, Part 1, The Choctaw Girl from Hog Creek Native ChocTalk

    • Society & Culture

WELCOME to Season 2 of Native Choctalk, A Podcast by Natives For All!

I’d like to thank each and every one of you who listened in Season 1 and supported this effort to preserve our American Indian stories, history, culture and traditions!

And, in order to take my own advice about preserving stories, today’s episode is in 2 parts and it’s a bit of my own story as well as that of my own ancestors.

My Producer and friend, Bee will be interviewing me today. We may have had a little too much fun recording these episodes - we can’t seem to get together without laughing and carrying on. However, although we may occasionally burst into friendship mode and a laugh or two, we do care deeply about the people we’re discussing, and we take the issues at hand very seriously.

In this first of 2 parts in this series, I share about growing up as 1 of 3 “feral” children in the country way out yonder in Hog Creek, miles outside of Anadarko, Oklahoma.

And I’ll share the raw truth about the challenges that came later as I navigated life as a divorced, single mom. And about the inspiration I found in my favorite Bible verse and how it prompted this Okie girl to pull herself up by her bootstraps.

Yakoke (thanks) to Chihowa (God) and to my chukka achvffa (family) for loving and supporting me.

Chahta sia hoke!
