Cultural Events Department
The Cultural Services Department has a mission to preserve our Choctaw cultural values by providing a foundation of knowledge utilizing our traditional elders, providing resource materials, participating in cultural activities and by protecting our historical sites and cultural artifacts sacred to the Choctaw people of our past and for our Choctaw Future. This department is responsible for promoting Choctaw cultural heritage to Tribal members and the community through a variety of means. Services offered include classes for the community and Tribal employees, (beading, basketry, dress making, corn husk doll making and other topics) educational presentations, storytelling, cultural exhibits and demonstrations, as well as educational and resource materials related to culture. The Cultural Services teaching team travels across the country to bring cultural activities to Choctaw community meetings in many major cities across the country as well as participates in events like Choctaw Days at the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian.
