Chickasaw Nation Productions was formed by the Chickasaw Nation in 2009 to share the enduring legacy of the Chickasaw Nation and its people through documentary and feature film.

“One of the best ways we can educate people about who we are – about our involvement in the early days of our country’s history, as well as who we are today – is to share a story in such a way that it both informs and entertains,” said Chickasaw Nation Secretary of Communications and Community Development Robyn Elliott.

Inspired by a true story, “Montford: The Chickasaw Rancher” explores the life of historic Chickasaw rancher Montford Johnson, who overcame great hardships and tragedy to establish a vast ranching empire along the famous cattle highway of the American West, the Chisholm Trail.

Armed with determination and dreams of a better life, he had the grit and courage needed to tame what seemed an infinite wilderness, while always maintaining respect for the First Americans who lived there.
