For the Orientation Theater, set in a traditional Council House structure, we produced a 20-minute film experience that introduces visitors to Chickasaw history and culture.
We immersed in Chickasaw culture for over a year...
...and learned about Chickasaw lifeways, filming both in Oklahoma and in the ancestral homelands in Mississippi.
A thriving tribe, the Chickasaw maintain strong traditions in crafts, games and rituals.
To celebrate the Chickasaw Stomp Dance tradition, we created larger than life portraits of the dancers, animated by original sound recordings.
