Heritage Monday a venue for Choctaw artists


Monday, Dec. 2, Choctaw Nation will host its monthly heritage day in celebration of the rich, living Choctaw culture.

Choctaw Nation employees are encouraged to wear a piece of traditional clothing on this day – t-shirts, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, etc. – and to greet guests in the Choctaw language.

This Monday will also include a special event, an “Artist Bazaar,” in which Choctaw artists will bring original artwork to the headquarters and allow employees and guests to purchase items.

This will be an opportunity to purchase unique and original Christmas gifts, as well as support Choctaw artists. Be sure to visit all floors in the main building of the complex from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

A regular event at the heritage day celebrations is a special lunch of traditional foods, which will be served in the employee cafeteria from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m., and traditional dance practice in the complex conference room at 2 p.m.

The Choctaw Nation tribal complex is located at 529 N. 16th in Durant. Everyone is welcome to attend and celebrate the rich Choctaw history and culture.
