Three Sisters Celebration

This annual event observes the changing of the seasons when essential crops like squash, corn and beans take root. An ancient method of gardening, “Three Sisters” uses an intercropping system to grow corn, beans and squash simultaneously. It provides long-term soil fertility and healthy crops of food. Examples of this system are located in gardens around campus.

Free activities in the Living Village include gardening demonstrations, food samples, cultural demonstrations, archery, stickball, face painting, cultural crafts, storytelling, stomp dancing and more.

Visitors can also learn about our connection to nature with horticultural tours and a stroll through the butterfly gardens.

Don’t miss one of the Chickasaw Cultural Center’s biggest events of the year!
