In partnership with the Cherokee Heritage Center in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, the National Cowboy Museum presents a Cherokee Cultural Celebration. Students will experience a variety of activities related to 19th century Cherokee culture and lifestyle. Hands-on participation in Cherokee games such as blow gun shooting, stickball playing, marbles, and chunkey will be presented. Demonstrations in pottery making, basket weaving, and finger weaving will show the unique Cherokee lifestyle of this time period. Other activity stations will introduce children to period toys, the Cherokee language, and storytellers sharing Cherokee lore. Museum galleries are open for self-directed tours. Students are encouraged to visit all stations and earn a prize for their participation.
Free admission to celebration and Museum for students and chaperones (1 per 7 students).
Suitable for Grades K – 8. Space provided to eat lunch. The event will be held rain or shine. A rain plan is established to allow the students to still enjoy many of the stations. Space limited, reserve a spot for your class now at (405) 478-2250 ext. 241.
