The Club’s distinguished Honorary Members, and the Chief of the Cherokee Nation, Chief Bill John Baker will be honored guests at the Indian Women’s Pocahontas Club’s annual “Old Fashion Picnic”, Saturday May 18, 2019 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, at the Will Rogers Birthplace Ranch near Oologah. Our club was founded in 1899, in Oowala, Indian Territory, Cooweescoowee District, of what is now known as the Cherokee Nation.

Community picnics were the social gatherings of that era. Our club continues to honor these traditions, as “We are the caretakers of our culture, our heritage, and our communities”.

The picnic is open to the public. Free admission. Sponsored in part by Cherokee Nation Businesses.
