Oklahoma Road Trip, Part 5

Oklahoma Road Trip, Part 4

During our Oklahoma family history road trip, we visited the Chickasaw Cultural Center in Sulphur. By coincidence, the day we decided to visit was their one-year anniversary and they were having a party with food, movies, giveaways and $1 admissions.

There were lots of people there, but you can't even tell from these pictures. The grounds were laid out nicely so that we weren't all up in each others visits.

While I was there, I stopped by the Holisso Research Center on the grounds and met with the head librarian. We had exchanged emails in the past, so it was nice to see her in person. The library and archives are amazing. There are special collections and staff to assist you in finding historical items. The online library catalog is being built and items are still being moved from the old location and/or being cataloged. Once everything is done, this will be an amazing research space.

The Chickasaw Cultural Center is a first-rate destination for families. I was pleased to share this experience with my son so he could see what it means to be a Chickasaw Citizen.
