November: American Indian Heritage Month

Date: Tuesday, November 1st – Wednesday, November 30th

Time: All Day

Location: Natchez Trace Parkway Visitors Center // 2680 Natchez Trace Pkwy. • Tupelo, MS 38804


The Natchez Trace Parkway will host an art exhibit by students from the Chickasaw Nation in Oklahoma, and present the Chickasaw Nation’s film, First Encounter, throughout the month of November to commemorate American Indian Heritage Month. The exhibit and film will be available for the public to see from 8 am to 5 pm in the auditorium at the Parkway Visitor Center.

The art exhibit includes pieces produced by students who attended special Chickasaw Nation art programs established to encourage students to explore their artistic talents. The Chickasaw Nation chose the pieces based on their artistic merit.
The Chickasaw Nation produced the 25-minute documentary film First Encounter. This film features reenactments and historical experts’ interpretations of the initial encounter between the Chickasaw people and Hernando de Soto’s exploration party. It gives new insights into life and survival in the Tupelo area in the 1500s.

This film and the art exhibit are free to the public.

Fans around the world know that the adventurous Nelson can sing just about anything—and with just about anyone he pleases. As he sees it, “The more songs you know, the more musicians you listen to, the more writers you hear, the better equipped you are to decide where you want to go next. That’s why I want to listen to everyone and everything and then decide which way I want to go. Then, of course, I might change my mind and go in an entirely different direction. But at least I have all these options.”

Catch Nelson and friends live in concert at the BancorpSouth Arena. Tickets Available At The Arena Box Office or at Ticketmaster.com.
