Event Description

Is there a story in your family about Native American ancestry? Join us as we explore records relating to Native Americans in Oklahoma, including the Dawes Roll. The Dawes Rolls are the lists of individuals who were accepted as eligible for tribal membership in the "Five Civilized Tribes": Cherokees, Chickasaws, Choctaws, Muscogees, and Seminoles. In the event of inclement weather, please check the status of your library program before venturing out at 405-843-9601.
