Description: The Chickasaw Nation Dance Troupe, from Sulpher, Oklahoma, invites you to this cultural event to learn about Chickasaw culture. The Chickasaw Nation Dance Troupe was formed in 1992 to educate, preserve and restore Chickasaw dance traditions. By keeping this tradition alive, the dance troupe is able to share the ancient arts of shell shaking, stomp dancing and songs with people from around the world. In this respect, the dance troupe serves as a goodwill ambassador for the tribe. The Chickasaw Nation Dance Troupe has performed at universities, festivals and ceremonial gatherings across the United States. There will demonstrations of stickball games, flute music, drums, Chickasaw regalia, bows and arrows, storytelling, and art.
