Indian Women’s Pocahontas Club hosts its Annual “Old-Fashioned Picnic” at the Will Rogers Birthplace Ranch
The Club’s distinguished Honored Members and the Cherokee Nation Delegate to Congress, Kim Teehee, will be the honored guests at the Indian Women’s Pocahontas Club’s annual “Old-Fashioned Picnic” on Saturday, May 21, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, at the Will Rogers Birthplace Ranch near Oologah, OK. Our club was founded in 1899, in Oowala, Indian Territory, Cooweescoowee District, in what is now known as the Cherokee Nation Reservation. Community picnics were the social gatherings of that era. Our club continues to honor these traditions, as “We are the caretakers of our culture, our heritage, and our communities.”
There will be a hog fry, live music, and Cherokee games such as Cherokee marbles, cornstalk shoot, horseshoes, and blowguns. This event is open to the public and admission is FREE!
