SULPHUR, Okla. (AP) - The Chickasaw Cultural Center is planning a Labor Day weekend celebration that will include cultural demonstrations and traditional games.
    
The Aug. 31 event begins with stomp dancing, a traditional ceremony, as well as storytelling. Living history performers in the traditional "living village" will portray Chickasaw life as it was in the 1750s. Families will be able to participate in interactive activities including stick ball, language demonstrations and archery.
    
A Regalia Fashion Show will begin at 1 p.m., and Chickasaw artist George Beach will be on-hand for a "Meet the Artist" opportunity at the Aaittafama' Room. Known for his native inspired drift wood sculptures, Mr. Beach's art will be featured at the Chickasaw Cultural Center from Aug. 31- Sept. 22. Beach has been carving wood since he was 9 years old.
