American Indian Culture:

Oklahoma’s position in Native American history has been significant, being the unassigned land that almost 60,000 American Indians were forced to relocate to from their ancestral homelands, following the passage of the Indian Removal Act, 1830. The mass migration of the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Muscogee Creek and Seminole nations, as well as their African Slaves became known as the Trail of Tears which continued for the next two decades.  

There are 39 Native American tribal headquarters In Oklahoma, more than any other U.S. state and a total of 67 Native American nations have called Oklahoma home. Their strong heritage and culture is very much a part of Oklahoma’s identity today. Two new American Indian attractions are due to open in the next year – the First Americans Museum in Oklahoma City (2021), and the Choctaw Cultural Center (late 2020) in Durant, headquarters of the Choctaw Nation. Well-established Native American experiences are also found at the Osage Nation Museum in Pawhuska, the Chickasaw Cultural Center in Davis, the Cherokee National History Museum in Tahlequah and the abundant annual powwows of visual and performing arts, craft and food festivals.
