Indian Territory Days Happen This Thurs/Fri

On Thursday and Friday of this week the Cherokee Heritage Center welcomes over 500 schoolkids from all over Oklahoma to our Indian Territory Days event. Look for educational activities that include an outdoor classroom with hands-on activities such as blowgun shooting, stickball, chunkey, a Cherokee language station, Trail of Tears museum tours, traditional storytelling, and self-guided tours through the ancient village. They'll see tools, weapons, basketry, ceremonial grounds, and traditional Cherokee homes. Volunteers from Bacone College in Muskogee and our regular dedicated volunteers--Nellie and Curtis Hunt, among others--will assist with this great event.
