Cherokee Heritage Center


The Trail of Tears Art Show began in 1972 as a means of fostering the development of painting as a form of expressing the Native American heritage in the area of the Cherokee Nation. Initiated before the completion of the museum, the Art Show was held in the rain shelter of the Tsa La Gi theatre. In 1975, it became the first major exhibition in the present museum. Over the years the show has expanded its categories, sponsorship and professionalism, but it is still here because it never lost the fundamental purpose of supporting the artists and expressing our native culture. TOTAS is the longest running Native themed show in Oklahoma.
