Experience a living classroom of Cherokee history and culture from the 1880s at the Cherokee Heritage Center's annual Indian Territory Days. Created for K-12 students, Indian Territory Days will focus on the late 1800s prior to Oklahoma statehood. Come to Indian Territory Days in Tahlequah for educational and entertaining demonstrations and activities people of all ages will enjoy.
Visitors to this annual event will learn from trained historical interpreters at nine different cultural stations leading Cherokee cultural activities. Activities will include storytelling, blowgun shooting, Cherokee marbles, a Cherokee language lesson and more. All activities at Indian Territory Days will be held in the Adams Corner Rural Village, a recreation of a 19th century Cherokee rural village. Demonstrations in pottery, basket weaving and finger weaving will give children a glimpse into the unique Cherokee lifestyle of this time period.
Head inside the Cherokee Heritage Center afterward to experience the museum's Trail of Tears exhibit. Identical activities are held on both days. While there is a small admission charge for all participating students, all chaperoning adults will be admitted free of charge. Call ahead for pricing details and registration.
