The Chickasaw Nation of Oklahoma opened the $40 million Chickasaw Cultural Center in July. The project was conceived more than two decades ago. Construction began six years ago on a 109-acre facility that includes the cultural center, a 350-seat theater, a replica of a traditional village, a cafe, a garden and the tribe's hall of fame. The center "reflects the vision, imagination, resilience and spirit of the Chickasaw people," Gov. Bill Anoatubby said, The Oklahoman reported. The tribe plans to hold cultural events and demonstrations in the village. Get the Story:
