Will Rogers Memorial Museum
Will Rogers Day, Indigenous Heritage Day, and National Native American Heritage Month, beginning the first Saturday of November, commemorate Will Rogers, the “Cherokee Kid” birthday (November 4, 1879). The Pocahontas Club has been celebrating Will’s birthday since the Will Rogers Memorial Museum was opened in 1944 with a Wreath Laying Ceremony that begins at the Will Rogers Memorial Museum Rotunda with a procession down to the tomb of Will Rogers. The club members will begin their ceremony dressed in their Cherokee tear dresses and shawls around the bronze statue of Will Rogers to recite their Club Collect and place a basket of fall foliage at the foot of the statue.
After the wreath-laying ceremony Jana Jae “Queen of Fiddle”, member of the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame and the National Fiddler’s Hall of Fame, will strike her bow to the fiddle, in the Will Rogers Theater. Join us, as we thank the Oklahoma Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts for sponsoring the entertainment.
