During the always-popular Stomp Dances, singing is half the fun — and also has spiritual meaning. The male leader does his calling song, and all participants sing out in response. It's easy — and echoes an ancient time when Chickasaws would gather, celebrate and pray around the sacred fire. Here, Chickasaw Artist Jeremy Wallace sings as he plays one of his handmade drums. Jeremy is also a Culture Keeper at the Cultural Center.
