Home for the Holidays: Easter

Happy Easter!

Welcome and Happy Easter from the Chickasaw Nation! Celebrating at home with the family and staying connected with loved ones virtually is a safe way to take part in this Easter season. Enjoy all the traditional aspects of the Easter holiday — virtually. 

Join us live for a fun Easter painting with Vicki Cowger April 1 at 2 p.m. CDT. The painting workshop is recommended for ages 8 and up, or younger with assistance from a caregiver.

Be sure to get the needed supplies and download the pattern before the workshop begins!

Watch live April 1 on the Chickasaw Nation Workshops and Trainings Facebook page.
