Grand Opening of the Cherokee Recollections, Pocahontas Club Exhibit
The Indian Women’s Pocahontas Club was established in June of 1899, Owalla, Indian Territory, Cooweescoowee District of the Cherokee Nation. The Grand Opening for the Exhibit and Living History Supper will be held at Cherokee Heritage Center, June 19, 2018 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The History Supper will be at the Adam’s Corner Rural Village which resembles the great change in Cherokee society in the days before Oklahoma statehood in an 1890’s setting. The general store, a school, a church, a few different types of houses and a large open area are perfect for an outdoor social gathering. Just like any social gathering in the 1890’s there will be plenty of homestyle fried chicken, tender BBQ brisket, fresh peach cobbler and homemade ice cream, along with Will Rogers favorite, white beans with ham and cornbread. In addition, there will be old time fiddling music.
The Cherokee Heritage Center was established in 1963 to preserve, promote and teach Cherokee history and culture. It is located on the grounds of the first Cherokee National Female Seminary. The Special Exhibit Gallery will house the Indian Women’s Pocahontas Club Exhibit from June 9th through August 4th.
