TRIBE RECEIVES FUNDING FOR WICHITA HISTORY CENTER

The Housing and Urban Development Agency has issued the Notice Of Funding Awards for fiscal year 2014 for the Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) program. The Wichita and Affiliated Tribes has been awarded $800,000.00 to construct the Wichita Historical Center to be built north of Anadarko, Oklahoma as discussed in previous newsletters. The center will provide the Tribe an opportunity to enhance the cultural preservation aspects with a museum which will provide educational and historical information of the Tribe for the entire community and will be shared with all visitors to the center. In addition, the history of the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes was documented through a joint effort with the University of Oklahoma and the Tribe which worked with the former Stovall Museum in Norman, Oklahoma to create a museum exhibit concerning the archaeology, history and culture of the Nation. The exhibit travelled throughout Oklahoma, Colorado, Kansas, Texas, and Tennessee during the late seventies and early eighties and upon its return was placed in the administration building of the Tribe. This ICDBG project will provide a permanent place in the museum for the story of the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes Nation and will be available for all to see.
