Our Nation > Culture


The department of culture and humanities’ main purpose is to preserve the heritage, history, language and culture of the Chickasaw Nation. The department offers history, traditional storytelling, cultural education classes, as well as information on cemetery preservation and repatriation.

Culture and history presentations have taken place at numerous public schools, senior citizen sites, Chickasaw Annual meeting and Festival, Chikasha Ittafama (Chickasaw Reunion) and youth camps. Most oral presentations consist of the pre-removal period involving homelands east of the Mississippi, along with displays of traditional items, such as ball sticks, regalia and turtle or "can" shakers.
