SULPHUR, Okla. – The month of November is Native American Heritage Month–a time to gather together, give thanks and celebrate tradition and culture. November is also the month we set aside a special day to honor veterans.

The Chickasaw Cultural Center in Sulphur, Oklahoma, honors culture, heritage and veterans during the Veterans Day Celebration, open to the public at no charge Nov. 10-11.

Activities will include special stomp dances to honor military personnel, cultural demonstrations and interactive attractions in the living village, featuring stickball, archery and basket making.

Active military and veterans receive free admission into the Chikasha Poya Exhibit Center and a special discount in the Aaimpa' Café and retail shops.

Visitors will be able to visit the Te Ata Exhibit, catch the films “Lincoln” at 10:30 a.m. and “Pearl Harbor” at 1 p.m. in the Anoliꞌ Theater and enjoy traditional Chickasaw or contemporary cuisine in the café.

The Chickasaw Cultural Center will be closed Monday, Nov. 12, in recognition of Veterans Day.
