When I learned we were going to focus on the Chickasaw Cultural Center for the November edition of Gallery I was concerned about doing a museum piece that would leave viewers yawning, but that was a concern born of my own ignorance about the center itself. The key word in this new establishment’s title is “Cultural”.
This is no museum. True, you will see wonderful works of art that tell the story of the Chickasaw Nation, a tribe that sustained a strong sense of it’s own identity through many hardships including relocation to Indian Territory, but it didn’t take me long to realize that all this beautiful art is in place to support a vital message. Culture matters, so in my segment of the November edition of Gallery I ask all of us an important question, “What is your culture?” Through the Chickasaw Nation we learn just how important our answer to that question can be.
I hope you’ll join us November 4th at 8:00pm for Gallery.
