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.
There will be interviewers on campus Thursday to document digital stories of men and women veterans We ask interested veterans to write a (nte 1000 word) one page story that you can talk about for the documentary. Bring some of your childhood, chilocco and military pictures, awards, etc, that we can include in the digital story. Hoping we can do 16 - 20 documenteries. Copies will be a part of our military permanent display.
This site is designed for visitors to easily move from page to page to view the numerous information relative to the Alumni Association and Chilocco. For additional information, contact information are provided .
