TAHLEQUAH – Cherokee Nation officials are celebrating Native American Heritage Month by offering free museum admission in November.

“The national recognition of November as Native American Heritage Month plays an important role in raising awareness about the rich and diverse cultures of our nation’s first people,” Travis Owens, Cherokee Nation Cultural Tourism director, said. “Oklahoma is home to 39 federally recognized tribes, and each has its own identity. We hope people will make time to visit us throughout the month of November so that we can celebrate and share the unique history and thriving culture of the largest tribal nation in the United States, the Cherokee Nation.”

The CN owns and operates five museum locations:

• Cherokee National Prison Museum at 124 E. Choctaw St.,

• Cherokee National Supreme Court Museum at 122 E. Keetoowah St.,

• Cherokee National History Museum at 101 S. Muskogee Ave.,

• Sequoyah’s Cabin Museum at 470288 Highway 101 in Sallisaw and

• John Ross Museum – 22366 S. 530 Road in Park Hill.
