Editorial Reviews


"In Choctaw Prophecy Tom Mould plumbs the depths and complex configurations of long-term oral traditions among the Choctaws. . . . He reminds us that prophecy takes place in the mundane social spaces as well as in the sacred ones."
—Robbie Ethridge, University of Mississippi

"Mould has provided some insight and perspective into an area that few delve into. There have been countless works on Native Americans as entire culture groups, but very few works exist that cover the use of language and prophecy. . . . The most important point of the book is cultural preservation."
The Florida Anthropologist

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By R. KLINGLER on November 23, 2012
Format: Hardcover
This book is a must-have, if only for its documentation of Choctaw prophecies, and included thematic list at the end. The discussion of the performance of prophecy, and other scholarly tripe, lend very little to this book's value. The people who were interviewed by the author, however come alive, and the poignancy of many of the prophecies they recall/convey become immediately apparent.
