Ilimpa’chi’ – we’re gonna eat!
The Roadhouse continues our education of Native American cuisine with the Chickasaw Nation, which includes 7,648 square miles of south-central Oklahoma. Many Chickasaws were successful farmers and ranchers, building some of the first schools, banks, and businesses in Oklahoma Indian Territory. The Chickasaw people survived the Trail of Tears and eventually adopted their own constitution in 1983. With a rich tradition steeped in song, storytelling and the arts, Chickasaw culture is a vibrant part of south central North America.
We welcome the University of Michigan Native American Studies program to bring this lively culture and delicious food to life at the Roadhouse.
