The Chickasaw Reunion “Chikasha Ittafama” has been canceled out of an abundance of caution in response to the coronavirus situation. The reunion traditionally takes place at Kullihoma annually in early May.

The decision to cancel this historic event was not made lightly, but ultimately the health and well-being of the Chickasaw people is the highest priority. The Chickasaw Nation looks forward to gathering together soon as a strong, healthy and united people.
