This OH-sponsored exhibit highlights Will Rogers' ties to his Cherokee family, culture, and communities. The exhibit illustrates Rogers' family history from the removal from their homelands in the east and their settlement in Indian Territory as "Old Settlers" to accounts of his life growing up in the Cherokee Nation. Rogers' entry into adulthood coincides with the Curtis Act, allotment, and statehood. The Cherokee Kid illuminates how these events shaped him as a man in the Cherokee Nation and as an American icon.
