They Say the Wind Is Red tells the history of the Choctaw Indians who managed to remain in Alabama when other southeastern Indians were forcibly removed to the West in the 1830s. This small band lived mostly hidden from public view in the swamps and piney woods of Mobile and Washington counties. Often misidentified as black or even cajun, the ancestors of today’s MOWA Choctaw maintained their Indian communities throughout the 1800s and early 1900s. This book chronicles the Choctaws’ pride, endurance, and persistence in the face of abhorrent conditions imposed by government at all levels.
