The Choctaw people always held a deep respect for animals offering up their lives so humans may survive. Choctaw ancestors had a special relationship with the natural world, and the animals they hunted, which continues today. Choctaws hunted deer to provide for their families, while keeping the deer population healthy and balanced in the cycle of life.
Ancestral Choctaw people relied on deer as a source of sustenance, but also for hides, bones and tendons that were used to make clothing, tools, and materials that supported their way of life. Choctaws revered the deer and its sacrifice. They wasted very little of their kill. It was tradition that once an animal was taken, that it be distributed to as many Choctaw families as the size of the hunt allowed as a way of giving back what nature had graciously provided.
