Cherokee Nation Cultural Tourism is providing students with a look at Cherokee Nation history and culture with an education tour program. Students receive an up-close look at historical sites, visit museums and participate in traditional Cherokee activities and crafts.
The tour program features three tours: the Cherokee History Tour that visits Tahlequah's historic Capitol Square and Cherokee National Supreme Court Museum, Murrell Home, Cherokee Heritage Center and Ancient Village; the Will Rogers Tour that visits the Will Rogers Memorial Museum and Dog Iron Ranch; and the Civil War Tour that visits Capitol Square, Murrell Home and Fort Gibson Historic Site.
In addition to the education tours, a variety of add-ons are available for an additional fee, including transportation on a 22-passenger shuttle bus, box lunches and cultural activities such as basket weaving, pottery and mini stickball making.
The students and/or school will provide lunch, water and/or snacks unless prearranged at sign-up.
