Tim Tingle is a Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma enrolled member and a frequent speaker at tribal gatherings. His great-great grandpa, John Carnes, walked the Trail of Tears in 1835, and his writing and storytelling are fueled by his recollections of this family saga. Tingle, the author of six books, was a featured speaker at the Smithsonian Institute's Native American wing in 2006 and 2007.
