Welcome to Native ChocTalk
From the heart of the Choctaw Nation in Durant, Oklahoma, the Chahta Foundation supports the Choctaw people through innovative services and programs in education, health and wellness and cultural citizenship. Our mission is to empower the Choctaw people to be self-reliant and take active ownership in the advancement of Choctaw life and culture.
"Return to Freedom is dedicated to preserving the freedom, diversity, and habitat of America’s wild horses and burros through sanctuary, education, advocacy, and conservation, while enriching the human spirit through direct experience with the natural world."

Unlike boarding schools of the past that attempted to remove the culture and language from our Indigenous people, today’s Native boarding schools serve kids from tribes across the country who wish to learn about their culture and language in a safe environment with their Native peers.
Riverside Indian School
Located in Anadarko, Oklahoma, Riverside is one of the only remaining Native boarding schools in the United States. At any one time, over 75 tribes can be represented in the environment.

Choctaw youth as well as other tribes are welcome at Jones Academy, where their education will also entail learning their language and carrying on the culture of their ancestors.
