Annual Keeping the Fire Campaign


For thousands of years American Indian people have kept their fires alive. This essential element helped sustain communities through their endeavors—from the customary to the sacred. In 2005, the tribes of Oklahoma came together to bless the grounds for The American Indian Cultural Center and Museum. Each tribe simultaneously offered a hickory stick to the central fire establishing the Cultural Center’s role to tell the stories of the tribes in Oklahoma. Help keep this inter-tribal fire alive. Your unrestricted tax deductible donation to the "Keeping the Fire" Annual Campaign supports The American Indian Cultural Center and Museum programs and operations.  This helps further the mission to serve as a living center for cultural expression promoting awareness and understanding for all people regarding Oklahoma American Indian cultures and heritage. While under construction The Center is creating its exhibits and programs. A significant part of exhibition development involves tribal consultants. Public programs are also being developed through the tribal outreach efforts.
