Meeting Place: Visitor Center
Admission: Free

Forced to walk the Trail of Tears, the Choctaws lost their lands, their homes, their families and their lives; but never their heritage. Come and join us as we celebrate that heritage by learning about history and culture directly from their nation. Some of the activities offered include stickball, beading, weaponry, social dancing, a Trail of Tears hike, and many more. Village Creek State Park’s food truck will be on location.
