Red Earth Treefest features 20 Native American tribes from throughout Oklahoma and their handmade ornaments and art. Each Christmas tree will be decorated by a different tribe to highlight its distinctive culture.
Handcrafted ornaments on the Christmas trees are as diverse as the tribes themselves. Birch bark canoes adorn the Citizen Potawatomi tree to represent the tribe’s Great Lakes culture; intricately painted ponies are featured on the Comanche tree to celebrate their legacy as “Lords of the Plains.” Each tribe’s tree also includes a description of the handmade ornaments featured.
Oklahoma tribes participating in the 2017 Treefest include the Absentee Shawnee, Caddo, Cherokee, Cheyenne & Arapaho, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Citizen Potawatomi, Comanche, Delaware, Kaw, Muscogee (Creek), Osage, Sac & Fox, Seminole, Kiowa, Otoe Missouria and Pawnee.
Additional trees include the Red Earth docent tree with hundreds of handmade ornaments and a tree featuring ornaments created by Oklahoma Native artists available for sale.
Red Earth Treefest is presented free to the public from 10 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday, November 13 through January 5, 2018. A special Open House is scheduled for Saturday, December 9 from 10 AM to 3 PM with hot wassail, holiday treats and Christmas shopping.
