Choctaw Indian Fair Focuses on Tribal Beginnings


The 61st Annual Choctaw Indian Fair will focus on the tribe's past. The Cultural Arts Center for the Choctaw Indian Fair showcases exhibits of the historic start of the Choctaw Tribe. Two years ago, the state of Mississippi signed land back over to the tribe where its 'Mother Mound' rests. Tribal traditions teach that the tribe was actually birthed from that very site. This year, for the first time at the fair, a special play is being presented that talks about this.
