The Cultural Activities section of the Resident
Services Department works with tribal members by reconnecting those
members with their acestral roots.
The Cultural Activities Program consists of the
Language Classes - Seminole Language Classes are
introductory courses to the Nation's native tongue. Participants
learn basic dialogue and idioms to revive a sense of pride and
thus, extend the language through word of mouth.
- Passing the Nation
to the Youth - The ultimate goal of this series of
meetings is to preserve the Seminole history by incorporating that
history with the Tribe's youth. Attending youth learn the history
and hear stories of the Seminole Nation from the mouths of those
who lived it. Bringing the elderly and younger generations together
ensures to pass Seminole heritage on to the future.
Distribution Program - The Food Distribution
Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) is a Federal program that
provides commodity foods to low-income households, including the
elderly, living on Indian reservations, and to Native American
families residing in designated areas near reservations and in the
State of Oklahoma.
