Where are we going today?

The Native American history is a truly fascinating one, and one that every family should immerse themselves in! 

The Five Civilized Tribes Museum is ALL about the history, art, and culture of the five civilized tribes in Oklahoma. Do you know what they are?

If you guessed Choctaw, Creek Chikasaw, Cherokee and Seminole, then you'd be right!

The museum has been educating families since all the way back in 1955, and continues to educate and fascinate about these very important cultures that we have in the USA. 

As you make your way around the museum, you will pass exhibits that feature various aspects of the lives of these tribes. As you walk around and look at all the artifacts, use your imagination as to what not only the tribes would have been like, but the people themselves. What were they like? What were their names? It's a great way for history to really come to live for those little history buffs!

Some of the exhibits change frequently, so there will always be something new to see every time you visit. There are also some exhibits that will always be there too, so you know that you will be going back to quality!

The Five Civilized Tribes Museum has an amazingly extensive collection of traditional art which has been produced by artists of the tribes themselves. Have a look at the colors and the patterns - what do you think they represent? Great for art students!

A historic trip into a part of American culture which has been, and still is, so important! Enjoy!
