Event Navigation

On Wednesday, August 2, at 2 p.m. (Central Time), the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) will hold a free virtual webinar on “Out of the Earth: Revitalizing Choctaw Traditional Art,” presented by Dr. Ian Thompson.

From brain-tanned bison robes processed with stone tools to traditional meals cooked in shell-tempered pots made from Choctaw homeland clays, this presentation will share some of the exciting cultural revitalization work happening at Choctaw Nation. This work both informs and is informed by Indigenous archaeology.

This presentation is part of SHPO’s 2023 Archaeology speaker series Hidden Oklahoma: How Archaeology Reveals Secrets From Our Past. Hidden Oklahoma guest archaeologists and researchers discuss important sites in Oklahoma and illustrate why archaeology is critical to understanding our history.

Register for the webinar.
