Chickasaw Honor Garden

As part of the Chickasaw Cultural Center, the Chickasaw Nation Honor Garden was created to honor those individuals inducted into the Chickasaw Nation Hall of Fame. The peaceful garden invites visitors to stop and reflect on the history of the Chickasaw people and commemorate each inductee who is honored there. The garden was designed using natural elements such as rock, granite and copper. Plantings were selected to compliment these features while using native and adapted species providing as much color year round as possible, with species selected from the ancestral beginnings of the Chickasaw in Georgia, Mississippi, and Tennessee. The architecture and unique sidewalk design was inspired by the four directions and incorporating spiral symbols indicative of traditional Chickasaw culture.
