Celebration of Cherokee Arts & Culture

April 22, 2024

12:00 am


Claremore Museum of History

121 N Weenonah Claremore, OK 74017


The final 75th Anniversary Celebration Event will be held at The MoH and in Gazebo Park. This event will include a traveling exhibit from the Cherokee Nation Heritage Center, Cherokee artists showing and offering their artwork for sale while children will learn how to play stickball and engage in other authentic Cherokee activities.
The exhibit tells the history of the Pocahantas Club which has a longstanding role in the preservation of Cherokee culture and is the oldest continuous club in Oklahoma. You will trace the lineage of the Club from its establishment in the summer of 1899 in the Cooweescoowee District of the Cherokee Nation in Indian Territory to present day.

Chief Bill John Baker recently reminded us that the Pocahantas Club has “witnessed some of the Nation’s most significant events in the tribe’s history from the Dawes Act and allotment era through Oklahoma statehood and the resurgence of Cherokee patriotism and pride.”

There is no charge to attend this event. It is possible that this date may be subject to change.
