Cultural Heritage Center Frequently Asked Questions
1How do I get a family member on the Veteran’s Wall of Honor?
They need to be or have been a CPN tribal member. We need a copy of their DD214 or Service Record and an image of the veteran (preferably a military image). These items can be scanned at 600 dpi and emailed to email@example.com. They can also be brought in to be scanned, or mailed to the attention of KeAnne Langford at the Cultural Heritage Center: 1899 S. Gordon Cooper Drive Shawnee, OK 74801.
If you have any further questions, feel free to call Cultural Heritage Center Collection Manager KeAnne Langford at 405-878-5830.
2How do I give an item(s) to the Cultural Heritage Center?
In order for item(s) to be considered, please submit the Donation/Loan Consideration Form, which can be found on the website here. Once the form has been reviewed by Collections and Research Staff, you will be contacted to let you know whether the item(s) are to be accepted or not. Items can be donated or loaned. Arrangements will be made during this conversation as to what the logistics are. Copies of this form are also available at the front desk at the Cultural Heritage Center or can be mailed. If you have any further questions, feel free to call KeAnne Langford at 405-878-5830 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3Can I see an item once it has been donated, even if it is not on display?
We have an open collection policy, and if a family member would like to come in and look at any item in the collection (depending on restrictions on the item), they can contact KeAnne Langford at 405-878-5830 to discuss options or email her at email@example.com.
4What type of items does the CHC look to be donated/loaned?
CHC staff are actively collecting any items that pertain to the Tribe, to any particular family or Tribal member. We do request that these items have proper provenance (item history- who owned it, when it was made, etc.) to the best of the donor’s knowledge. If you have any further questions, feel free to call KeAnne Langford at 405-878-5830 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
5Do you accept items during Family Reunion Festival?
The Cultural Heritage Center no longer accepts donations or loans during Festival because it is an extremely busy time for the Cultural Heritage Center staff. We offer copies of the Donation/Loan Consideration Form at the CHC’s front desk. If you have any further questions, feel free to call KeAnne Langford at 405-878-5830 or email her at email@example.com.
6If I donate or loan something, will it go on display?
CHC staff cannot guarantee an item will go on display or at what point it could. As exhibits change and updated, items may work into the rotation. This depends highly on the condition of the item, which is noted when an item is donated or loaned.
