2018 Chickasaw Celebrations

The Chickasaw Inkana Foundation will be hosting a Chickasaw Celebration at the DeSoto County History Museum and the MS Hills National Heritage Area Alliance on Thursday, September 13, 2018, consisting of cultural demonstrations from the Chickasaw Nation displaying traditional crafts, language, music, dancing, storytelling, cooking, and stickball. We will also host scholarly discussions on Chickasaw history and culture in the Tupelo City Hall Council Chamber. Lastly, working with the Tupelo Public School District, we will develop CEU-qualifying teacher training and curriculum development sessions for 4th-grade classrooms which attend the Celebration.
