Chahta Foundation - Empowering the Choctaw Nation

Knowledge can be infinite, if it’s not forgotten. The Chahta Foundation works to empower the next generation with information through education. Every project is designed to produce high-impact initiatives that bring positive change to the Choctaw community. And every initiative is designed to both educate and evolve with our people to improve the overall well-being of Choctaw Nation citizens.


Inspired by the constant evolution and determination of the Choctaw people, we work to keep tradition and knowledge flowing through impactful initiatives.


Since 1999, the Chahta Foundation has worked to affect positive change in the lives of Choctaw people.
