By Cody Hammer, ON Communications
PAWHUSKA, Okla. (Nov. 1, 2018) – We are excited to announce the grand opening of the Osage Nation Visitors Center. The Osage Nation Visitors Center provides accurate history of the Osage using technology and literature, providing an enhanced experience for all visitors.
“It has been a long yet rewarding experience to be a part of developing this new program for the Osage Nation. The amount of visitors coming to the area is huge and I believe it is important for us to tell our story as Osages” said Addie Hudgins Director of the Wahzhazhe Cultural Department. The ON Visitors Center promotes Osage owned businesses and Osage artists in the area. The Center will also direct visitors to local attractions; as well as provide details and directions for Osage Nation programs and services. Visitors will have the opportunity to use the Osage Language App on the IPad bar; and purchase gifts and art by Osage artists.
We would like to thank the staff of the Cultural Center for their patience and for sharing their director, as well as the Tribal Development and Land Acquisition Department, Tribal Works, Information Technologies, Roads Department, Osage Casinos and Chad Renfro Design for their assistance with renovations,.
