Chinnubbie and the Owl
Muscogee (Creek) Stories, Orations, and Oral TraditionseBook - 2005
Though he died at the age of thirty-four, the Muscogee (Creek) poet, journalist, and humorist Alexander Posey (18731908) was one of the most prolific and influential American Indian writers of his time. This volume of nine stories, five orations, and nine works of oral tradition is the first to collect these entertaining and important works of Muscogee literature. Many of Poseys stories reflect trickster themes; his orations demonstrate both his rhetorical prowess and his political stance as a Progressive Muscogee; and his works of oral tradition reveal his deep cultural roots. Most of these pieces, which first appeared between 1892 and 1907 in Indian Territory newspapers and magazines, have since become rarities, many of the original pieces surviving only as single clippings in a few archives.
