Oklahoma Tribes Celebrate Labor Day
Several Native American tribes across Oklahoma are holding celebrations this weekend to recognize their culture and heritage.
In Tahlequah, the Cherokee Nation is hosting the Cherokee National Holiday. The holiday commemorates the signing of the 1839 Cherokee Constitution. The event runs through Sunday and will feature arts and crafts, softball and basketball tournaments, fireworks and more.
The Chickasaw Cultural Center in Sulphur is hosting a stomp dance, stickball and cultural demonstrations as part of a Labor Day celebration on Saturday.
The Choctaw Nation is hosting its third-annual stickball tournament as part of the tribe's Labor Day Festival in Tuskahoma. The tournament starts Friday and runs through Sunday.
Choctaw Nation Chief Gregory Pyle says tribal members historically played stickball to solve conflicts instead of going to war.
