Hi friends! Jared here.
Twenty-eight years ago on a hot, blustery day in Washington D.C., President George H.W. Bush made a declaration that would honor the heritage of all Native American people. This declaration named November as National American Heritage Month and is still celebrated each year by millions across the nation.
With dozens of fun and insightful activities, Chickasaw Country is an ideal place to celebrate Native American Heritage Month. The Chickasaw Cultural Center in Sulphur has several events planned in November, beginning with the Multi-Tribal Day on November 3.
The festivities at the Chickasaw Cultural Center culminate into a two-day Thanksgiving celebration on Nov. 24-25 featuring activities like traditional stomp dance demonstrations, a miniature ornament class and a children’s Christmas workshop.
Experience the beauty and serenity of the land with a stroll through foliage in the Chickasaw National Recreation Area.
Visit the Fort Washita Historic Site & Museum to learn about the facility designed to protect the Chickasaw and Choctaw tribes from 1842 to 1865.
