Researching Tribes Activity
There are thirty-eight federally recognized tribes in Oklahoma. Break the class into groups of two or three and have each group research a different tribe. Present your findings to the class! Use the tribal websites for helpful information.
Be sure to include but could be more:

- Where were they moved to in Oklahoma?
- What types of traditional clothing do they wear for ceremonies?
- What language do they speak?
- An interesting fact about the tribe.
