Ikbi: Chickasaws and Choctaws Sharing Our History and Culture Through Art

at Oklahoma Hall of Fame at Gaylord-Pickens Museum

In the Choctaw and Chickasaw languages, “Ikbi” means “to create.” The concepts of creation, identity and culture unite in a special exhibit at the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, “Ikbi: Chickasaw and Choctaws Sharing Our History and Culture Through Art." Artists of both tribes implement various mediums to express their cultural roots and individual understandings of what it means to create.

The artists find their base in history, culture and individual relationships to the surrounding world. Their creations are an expression of their identity in addition to an interpretation of their relationship to the past and current societies. In this exhibit, Ikbi serves as a commonality for artists of many different backgrounds, practices and mediums.

Ikbi is located in the Tulsa World | Lorton Family gallery on the third floor of the museum.
