Sorghum Demonstration October 24th!

The museum is going “back to basics” this Sorghum Day, Saturday, October 24!
Although the festival itself had to be canceled due to the crowds of thousands that visit Wewoka each fall, the museum will continue the tradition of sorghum making it began back in 1976.
So, grab your lawn chairs or pull up (a socially-distanced) bale of hay and join us for some bbq, fry bread and hot sorghum, and some toe-tappin‘ live music. Jake and Jessie will be there turning the mill and the Sorghum Festival Committee will have festival t-shirts for sale.


YouTube account is live!

As part of our Social Media campaign, the museum is proud to announce it has launched it's first YouTube account! This account will feature several short videos promoting events, the arrival of new art and artifacts, gift shop items, interviews, and will be used to bring our audience closer to the culture of the Seminole people. 

Please subscribe here, and don't forget to turn on notifications so that you can be alerted to any new content added!
