S2, E3: Sarah Elisabeth & Lynda Kay Sawyer Discuss Ancestral History & Tushpa's Story Native ChocTalk

    • Society & Culture

There’s an incredibly powerful book that changed the way we understand and “feel” the journeys of those who walked the Trail of Tears. It’s called Tushpa's Story (Touch My Tears: Tales from the Trail of Tears Collection), and January 28, 2022, is the 6th anniversary of its release!

What better way to celebrate this anniversary than by hearing more about the book, directly from Choctaw Author, Sarah Elisabeth Sawyer. And guess what? You can either buy the book on this website (https://www.sarahelisabethwrites.com/), or you can download a FREE copy (by clicking on the red ribbon at the top and signing up for the newsletter)!

Sarah isn’t just a writer - she’s a trailblazer. In her collections, she takes our historical Choctaw stories and events and creates fascinating can’t-put-it-down historical fiction books (“heavy on the fiction and heavy on the on the history”, she says) – finally, a way to make our history come alive!

A special guest, Sarah Elisabeth’s mother, Lynda Kay was also willing to join in to share about the work she does to support Sarah’s writing, about their family’s ancestral stories and about her photography, writing and jewelry design. Check out this website to see her jewelry! https://www.sarahelisabethwrites.com/shopping?category=Jewelry

Sarah Elisabeth mentions in her website, “enduring hope and incredible beauty rises from the ashes.” And that’s what I love about these books. Each one conveys hope, even in the worst of times. I think you’ll be inspired, so enjoy and let me know what you think!
