Season’s Greetings

Season’s greetings and warmest holiday wishes from all of us at the Chickasaw Nation!

Christmas is a time to celebrate our families, our friends and our beloved tribe. We thank God for the many blessings he has bestowed upon us, and we pray for the health and happiness of those we love.

Chickasaws share a special bond that has endured throughout the generations. Through the centuries, Chickasaws have faced many challenges. With God’s grace and guidance, we have endured and prospered as a people. So many Chickasaws from generations past sacrificed that we might enjoy the lives we have today. We are eternally grateful for those who cleared the path for us.

This Christmas season, we extend special holiday wishes to all our military men and women serving at home and abroad. We pray for your safety, the success of your mission and your reunion with loved ones.

We ask for blessings for our Chickasaw veterans who have served our country with valor and honor; for our Chickasaw elders who hold a special place in our tribe; for our Chickasaw families whom we wish much peace and happiness.

We pray a special blessing for our Chickasaw children. May they experience a wonderful Christmas season and fulfill all the dreams they have for their lives.

This season’s message of love and peace is particularly important to those who have experienced challenge and sorrow in their lives. We pray for those who seek understanding and compassion.

May we always answer the call when we meet the opportunity to help our fellow man.

The season of peace, joy and hope has arrived! God bless you, your family and our beloved Chickasaw Nation!
