CCC Children's Magazine

CCC prints children’s magazine for members

May 1, 2023

The Choctaw Cultural Center Membership Program, which got underway at the beginning of the year, is now providing a new children’s magazine. The publication is aimed at ages 4-12 and filled with fun cultural and educational activities. For those who enroll in the annual Group (or Family) Membership called Chukka Achvffa, the new Vlla im Anoli, or Tell the Child magazine, is now available.

Warm Season, Volume One of Vlla im Anoli is the first of a bi-annual publication featuring eight pages of original artwork, pictures to be colored, a crossword puzzle, Choctaw language lessons, and more. Tribal and non-tribal members alike can find hours of enjoyment while learning about Choctaw heritage. The second volume, Cool Season will be released in the fall.

Memberships cover unlimited complimentary admission to the cultural center’s permanent exhibitions, the changing exhibition gallery, the Luksi Activity Center, the Living Village, Kowi Chito Theater, and many special workshops and classes that would otherwise have an added fee. In addition, members receive one complimentary soft drink at Champuli Café per visit; a $25 gift card to Champuli Café; 20 percent discount at Hvshi Gift Shop on select items; a branded magnet; invitations to members-only events; advanced notice for classes; and entry into quarterly drawings. Now, the children’s bi-annual magazine will also come to Chukka Achvffa members.

Chukka Achvffa (Group/Family) membership is $100 each year, which includes two adults and up to four children. For this and other membership level information (some as low as $40) click here or call 833-708-9582. The Choctaw Cultural Center is located at 1919 Hina Hanta Way in Durant.
