The Southern Plains Indian Museum displays richly varied arts of western Oklahoma tribal peoples including the Kiowa, Comanche, Kiowa-Apache, Southern Cheyenne, Southern Arapaho, Wichita, Caddo, Delaware, and Ft. Still Apache. Their historic clothing, shields, weapons, baby carriers, and toys highlight the exhibits.

The National Hall of Fame for Famous American Indians was incorporated in 1952 in Anadarko, Oklahoma and dedicated their first sculpture in 1953 of the famed Delaware Indian Scout Black Beaver. The outdoor statuary garden, which has free admission and is staffed by volunteers, features busts of forty-one Native Americans from various tribes to honor their contributions and place in American history.
Grapes grown in Oklahoma intrigued us in the early 2000's which prompted us to research their history and possible application to Oklahoma's agricultural future. We planted our research vineyardwith both personal preferences and established practices so far proven and some not tried in Oklahoma. Our mission is to make great Oklahoma wines using Oklahoma grapes for Oklahomans. If others like it, so much the better.
