Artist Directory

The artist directory is a listing of visual, literary, performing, film, video and/or radio artists of Southeastern or Woodland tribal affiliation. The directory allows immediate notification of programs, events, classes, exhibits, calls to artists, auditions and activities to be sent to any and/or all artists listed in the directory. Information contained within the directory is used solely by the Chickasaw Nation. Should an outside entity request information, artists will be contacted for permission before any information is released.

All artists are requested to send in the following: a short biography (150 words approximately), headshot or personal photo, proof of Native American citizenship in a federally recognized tribe and a completed application form.

Visual artists: four examples of your work in any of the following formats: 25 mm color slides, digital images on disc (Jpeg or tiff preferred), printed color copies or color photos with your name and phone number on each.

Literary or performing artists: list of published works, public performances or events.
