Three Sisters Celebration 2015
The Three Sisters Celebration is our biggest event of the year. The two-week celebration pays homage to the ancient method of gardening known as the "Three Sisters." The term “Three Sisters” refers to corn, beans and squash. Each plant benefits the growth of one another. They provide long-term soil fertility and healthy crops of food.
There were so many activities happening around campus, everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves.
I loved seeing all the children with painted faces! They were very excited to learn about the different symbols and wore them with pride!
Another popular activity was the cultural crafts.
There were dozens of crafts to choose from, including flute decorating,
pinch pots and more!
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Chickasaw Cultural Center Celebration without a game of stickball!
Before the games began, visitors received a quick lesson.It didn’t take long for the players to catch on!
We played men versus women and the girls won!
The Three Sisters stew was on-site every day for guests to sample.
Named for its ingredients, the Three Sisters Stew is a delicious medley of corn, beans and squash.
The 2015 Three Sisters Celebration was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who visited!
