CALL FOR YOUTH ARTISTS

The Oklahoma Indian Child Welfare Association (OICWA) Conference Committee invites American Indian and Alaska Native youth artists to participate in the Call For Artists. OICWA is excited to provide an opportunity once again for youth artists to showcase their talents in support of the 2022 Conference hosted by the Choctaw Nation Resort and Casino, Durant, Oklahoma.
