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 are their homelands?
  • 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.
