About - Culture

The Inchokkaalaali (I’m Visiting) Assistance Request program covers the cost of admission fees, sack lunches and activity kits for eligible Oklahoma school groups visiting the Chickasaw Cultural Center (CCC) in Sulphur, Oklahoma. Groups are also eligible for a mileage reimbursement for buses paid to their respective school. The assistance is received through an application and award letter process.

The CCC provides opportunities to connect with First American history through performances, reenactments, demonstrations, collections, and exhibits at one of the largest and most extensive tribal cultural centers in the United States. While visiting the campus, students will receive a guided tour of the Chikasha Poya Exhibit, the Holisso Exhibit, and the traditional village.

Students can participate in a cultural art or horticultural demonstration, and will receive an activity kit reflective of that activity to take home.


We received grants from Oklahoma Humanities (ended December 2023) and from the Oklahoma City Community Foundation (ends May 2024) to fund this program.

We request that attending students and teachers provide feedback about their trip and experience after the visit.

Funding for this program is provided in part by a grant from the Oklahoma City Community Foundation for schools groups in central Oklahoma.
