Choctaw-Chickasaw Freedmen
Heritage Conference
February 26-27, 2010
Tulsa Oklahoma
Featured Exhibit:  Freedman Faces
For the first time in the history of Oklahoma statehood, descendants of Choctaw and Chickasaw Freedmen will gather to honor and celebrate this unique part of Oklahoma history.

Hundreds of Freedmen descendants attended and graduated from Langston University and it is fitting that this reunion will take place on the  Langston University Tulsa campus.  The university’s hosting this conference will insure that the neglected history of the Freedmen of the Five Civilized Tribes will not be forgotten.

Our unique history began as enslaved and free people arriving in Indian Territory in the 1830s & later as Freedmen and Freedwomen.

Our story is of their quest for survival, and their story of endurance perseverance and strength.
