22nd Annual Choctaw Gathering

22nd annual Choctaw gathering in Bakersfield, California celebrates Choctaw culture and the Choctaw people. This year’s theme is “The Year of the Children”. This is not your typical Inter-Tribal Native American Pow Wow. Our event is mostly considered a gathering of Choctaw people celebrating their culture. It is strictly Choctaw culture based. It will not feature intertribal dancing. No dance competition will take place. We welcome the crowd to participate in all activities as this is a family-friendly event.

Okla Chahta Clan Princesses contest is for young women ages 6-23. Winners hold their titles for 1 year and place in either of the three categories: Miss Okla Chahta Clan of California Princess, Jr. Miss Okla Chahta Clan of California Princess, & Little Miss Okla Chahta Clan of California Princess. We expect Princesses to represent the Choctaw people with dignity and honor. This is not a beauty contest.  Applicants must sell raffle tickets, write 3 essays, and participate in a private personal interview at the annual gathering.
