Haskell Cultural Center and Museum

Haskell Cultural Center and Museum A museum dedicated to advancing the knowledge and understanding of the history, culture, and arts of the people past and present of Haskell Indian Nations University.
(13)

The vision of the Haskell Cultural Center and Museum is to respectfully serve as a steward of living Tribal materials, traditions and cultural arts. Using these tools as a vehicle of transmission to truthfully convey the story of Haskell’s remarkable evolution from a government boarding school to its present day fully accredited University status. The Cultural Center celebrates the living heritage and culture of all tribal peoples and strives to continue the legacy of education through culturally based exhibitions, educational programs, tribal cultural art classes and internships. It serves as a teaching facility for Haskell students, staff, faculty, alumni, researchers and general public. The Cultural Center’s future goal is to create and provide educational programing for local school districts, provide trainings on culturally sensitive topics including tribal education and Haskell’s history.

Allen C. Tanner (Cherokee) served as a Musician 3rd Class with the 110th Engineers Band during World War I. He was from Grove, Oklahoma, and joined the army in 1915, probably serving in the Mexican border war. He was a former student of Haskell and can be seen holding a trombone in this photograph. In 1919, he was still in France after the signing of the armistice and decided to take advantage of the opportunities. So he attended a bandmasters and musicians school in Chaumont, France.

We would love to learn more about this musician soldier, if anyone knows what he did after the war. World War One Centennial Commission World War I Native American Warriors Cherokee Nation History and Preservation

This photo postcard is dated Oct. 1946. The labeling is "A Pageant Tribute to American Indians who saw service in WWII." Dillon or Pillon (photographer) It doesn't seem to be at Haskell, but thought someone might recognize the boarding school. campus where this took place. Blankets women are wearing have flags. One has the name of the service member, but I can't make it out.
Neat piece...
Sent this object in a couple years ago...wondering whether anyone discovered more about it, and whether it ever made it into the collections?
Greetings! Sent this object in a couple years ago...wondering if anyone discovered more about it, and whether it made it into the collection?...
I can still, after all the years, remember visiting the institute with our girls group from church. I thought it was so fascinating and such a cool place. Maybe one day my husband and I can come up there and visit again. Good memories.
Here is a link with some early 1900 pictures of Haskell: https://www.kansasmemory.org/locate.php?categories=3114-9622&
Is the museum and cultural center ever open on the weekends?
Everyone Welcome!
Enjoyed the event, thank you Jancita.
Thank You!!! :)

Thank you for all your help today! :) #OnwardHaskell
