World Storytelling Day
Families can explore the various types of storytelling and the passing of oral traditions from one generation to the next. Listen to cowboy poetry, learn from a Kiowa storyteller, tell your story at the open mic session and create your own travel journal and six-word story.
Liichokoshkomo’ (pronounced Lee-cho-kosh-ko-MO) is a Chickasaw phrase for “Let’s play,” a trailblazing play space dedicated to providing learning through STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) as children explore and try new things. The outdoor experience was thoughtfully designed to engage both the hands and minds of visitors for hours of family entertainment. The space also proudly showcases the many cultural influences that came together to build the American West.
The $15 million project includes an intertribal village that represents seven tribes (Caddo, Chickasaw, Hopi, Kiowa, Navajo, Pawnee and Ancient Puebloan), rail car and train depot, trading post, pioneer wagon, sod house, playground, waterfall and much more. Families will be able to create their own American West stories as they interact with the various features within the adventurous space such as exploring a prairie schooner wagon for a “journey” West, grinding corn, adding to a community loom weaving and an assortment of other daily activities. https://nationalcowboymuseum.org/event/spring-break-sneak-peek-week/2020-03-14/
