Chickasaw historian headed to OSU

Ada —  

Dr. Amanda Cobb-Greetham is making a transition from her work as administrator of the Chickasaw Nation Division of History and Culture back to life as a university professor. Cobb-Greetham has begun serving as a tenured associate professor of English at Oklahoma State University, specializing in Native American studies. 

She will continue in her role as editor of the Chickasaw Press. She will also continue to research and write about the Chickasaw Nation and curate museum exhibits.

“Serving as the administrator of History and Culture under Governor Anoatubby’s leadership has been amazing,” said Cobb-Greetham. “I am grateful for every day of the experience and for all of the people with whom I have worked. However, I started my career as a professor and feel a deep need to teach and write—about Chickasaw history and culture.  I am excited to begin a new chapter of service to the Chickasaw people.” 

Chickasaw Nation Gov. Bill Anoatubby said that Cobb-Greetham will continue to be an asset to the Chickasaw Nation.

“Amanda has done an excellent job as administrator of the Division of History and Culture,” said Anoatubby. "We appreciate her important role in advancing our efforts to preserve and revitalize Chickasaw history and culture.”

Cobb-Greetham served as administrator of Chickasaw Nation Division of History and Culture.  from 2007 to 2012. She helped launch the state-of-the-art Chickasaw Cultural Center in Sulphur, which recently received a state tourism award.
