Chickasaw Nation starts work on cultural center

The Chickasaw Nation broke ground last Thursday on a cultural center on land it received as part of a land swap with the federal government.

The center will be located 110 acres next to the Chickasaw National Recreation Area. Plans call for a 127,000 square-foot facility with theaters, exhibits, art galleries and a library, plus an outdoor amphitheater.

The tribe received 29 acres from the National Park Service for the project. The city of Sulphur gave 39 acres to the Park Service.

The tribe says it has no plans for gaming on the land.
