Message From The Governor
On behalf of the Chickasaw Nation, welcome to Chickasaw Country, where we invite you to explore the rich Native culture of the Chickasaw people, and to discover the many welcoming, warm spirited communities of south-central Oklahoma. It is with great pleasure that we introduce inviting locations for you to visit during your next trip to Chickasaw Country.
As you tour Chickasaw Country, you will discover Native, historical and cultural attractions such as the Chickasaw Cultural Center in Sulphur, the Chickasaw White House in Emet and the historic Chickasaw Capitol Building in Tishomingo. Enjoy a day at the Chickasaw Cultural Center, the largest tribal cultural center in the United States. Located on 109 acres of picturesque land, the state-of-the-art campus showcases live stomp dance demonstrations, interactive exhibits and galleries, as well as a living village and natural outdoor spaces to tell the story of the unconquered and unconquerable Chickasaw Nation. For a change of pace, enjoy a hike in the Chickasaw National Recreation Area or a zip through the Arbuckles at Air Donkey Zipline in Davis.
Filled with a host of entertainment options, the new Chickasaw Country website offers numerous options to help plan your travels throughout Chickasaw Country. Tourism centers across Chickasaw Country offer a welcoming environment and complimentary fresh brewed coffee as well as free maps and travel information. Native American art, history and culture are showcased at the Chickasaw Nation Welcome Center in Davis, the Chickasaw Visitor Center in Sulphur and the Tourism Information Center in Thackerville. Tourism information in Oklahoma City can be found inside Exhibit C in Bricktown, where you’ll also find many pieces of hand-made art crafted by Chickasaw and other Native American artists.
We hope our new website serves you in trip planning by showcasing the many destinations, places to explore and attractions to visit while you’re in Chickasaw Country. We look forward to welcoming you to the place where culture and spirit come alive and adventure awaits.
Bill Anoatubby, Governor
The Chickasaw Nation
