Situated on 22 beautiful prairie acres near the Choctaw Nation Headquarters in Durant, the center transports guests to a multifaceted cultural destination. The Champuli Restaurant and Hvshi Gift Store and many ongoing educational programs and events bring the Chahta spirit of faith, family, and culture to life.
Explore over 100,000 square feet of indoor exhibitions, a vast Living Village and a replica of an ancient spiritual mound. Each immersive exhibit is told from the Choctaw perspective, honoring the physical and spiritual journey of the Choctaw people. The Choctaw Cultural Center welcomes all visitors to follow a 14,000-year journey of the tribe, discovering aspects of the Choctaw story through landscapes, pictures, artwork and artifacts.
Soak in the rich history, culture, and experiences of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. Life-like figures show how the tribe lived “before contact” while others display how they live in contemporary times. See hand-made items created by Choctaw tribal members including jewelry, baskets, beadwork, artwork and more.
The children’s activity center features a giant turtle with traditional Choctaw houses and a mini-forest to explore. Participate in the Choctaw oral storytelling tradition or help keep the Choctaw spirit alive cheering on a stickball game. Showcasing the Choctaw Nation’s treasured history and culture, the center is a place for all ages to gather, learn and preserve the Choctaw spirit and way of life.
