This is the official site for the former students and staff of the Chilocco Indian Agricultural School, i.e. the Chilocco National Alumni Association, founded and organized in 1980 through the State of Oklahoma and the Internal Revenue Service as a non-profit entity.
Since the closure of the school in 1980, the 5,000 plus acres, through Congressional action, was equally divided and transferred to the five (Kaw, Otoe-Missouria, Pawnee, Ponca and Tonkawa) North Central Oklahoma tribes. However, the 165 acre main campus and all major buildings is held jointly by the five tribes as a confederation.
Fortunately, the Chilocco National Alumni Association has been able to obtain permission to use appropriate campus sites for annual reunion activities.
The campus, with the major buildings, is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
CNAA has a digital story about Ernest Childers. It is narrated by his daughter Elaine Childers. Other stories of Jack Montgomery, Burney Walden and Nathan Benton are pending completion.
