Greeting visitors to the Chickasaw Cultural Center is this larger than
life representation of the Chickasaw warrior.
In addition to the indoor exhibits there was a live demonstration of the Stomp Dance.
Several bus-loads of children and other visitors watched the Stomp Dance demonstration.
The Chickasaw Cultural Center has a large and well-designed campus on 109 acres of beautiful Chickasaw territory in southern Oklahoma. The sprawling campus features state-of-the-art exhibits, outdoor gathering places, a theater, café, and lush trails and woods.
Visitors can also walk through a Traditional Village.
The reconstructed Chickasaw village includes the large council house, two winter houses to the left of the council house, a tiny food storage shed behind them, and a summer house to their left. The protecting enclosure fence can be seen surrounding the village. Not pictured, to the left of this scene, is the ceremonial mound which served as the base for the home of the tribal chief.
It was a delightful day for us, both interesting and informative.
