Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma The Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma The Choctaws’ thirst for knowledge and their drive to succeed have brought them from the tragedy of the Trail of Tears in the 1800s to being one of the most prosperous entities in the nation. While using every opportunity to generate profits to help fund health care services, social programs and educational opportunities for 190,000 members, Tribal leaders have not forgotten their rich history. Programs teaching the language reach out to schools and colleges throughout Southeastern Oklahoma as well as community classes in four states. Artwork, social dancing, traditional weddings, storytelling and cultural demonstrations also help keep the Chahta way alive. Website: www.choctawnation.comChoctaw Nation of OK
