Cherokee Nation to Host Indian Territory Days


Area students will have the opportunity to spend an interactive day learning about Cherokee arts, language and lifestyles of the 1890's at the Cherokee Heritage Center during Indian Territory Days on March 26-27.

The annual educational event features a variety of hands-on learning activities for public, private and home-schooled children in grades K-12. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m., and the event will conclude at 2 p.m. each day.

The museum and villages are open for self-directed tours, with demonstrations highlighting the many unique aspects of the time period held throughout the day. 

Cultural stations are located throughout the grounds to introduce students to the art of Cherokee pottery making, basket weaving, finger weaving and more. Students are also encouraged to try their hand at cultural games such as blow gun shooting, stickball, marbles and chunkey.

Admission is $7 per student and accompanying adults are $2. School personnel accompanying students get in free. Payment can be made to the Cherokee Heritage Center with cash, check, purchase order or credit card. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged.
