Chickasaws prepare for holiday gala

Ada —  

   The Chickasaw Nation will host a holiday-themed trek through Chickasaw territory Dec. 8.

The Christmas at the Museums event features a free progressive dinner providing a separate course of dinner at each stop. 

Appetizers will be provided at 4 p.m. at the Chickasaw Council House in Tishomingo, followed by a variety of stews at 5 p.m. at the historic Chickasaw Capitol.

After the dinner, a shuttle will be available to take the guests to the Chickasaw White House in Emet for desserts and a visit with Santa.

Guests will also be able to enjoy the festive décor and music as they tour the museums.

The Council House Museum includes artifacts tracing the history and culture of the Chickasaw people, contemporary Chickasaw artworks, a gift shop and many more.

It is located at 209 N. Fisher.

Chickasaw Capitol building, a stately structure overlooking the town of Tishomingo, is located at 411 W. Ninth Street.

Built in 1895, the Chickasaw White House was the home of the Chickasaw governor and his family from 1898 to 1971.

Now under the care of the tribe, the White House has been restored to its full grandeur.

It is located at the north edge of Emet, ten miles east of Tishomingo.
