Shahó Memorial Exhibit

On April 13, 2019, an EF3 tornado hit Caddo Mounds State Historic Site, decimating the museum and the traditional Caddo grass house. Alaina Tahlate, a member of the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma and tornado survivor, shared the Caddo word for the tornado experience, shahó. This shahó began on Caddo Culture Day—the one day each year that draws many Caddo culture keepers (elders, artists, language keepers, singers, dancers, and youth) back to their ancestral home in East Texas to celebrate together and share traditions with the community. The virtual shahó memorial captures the stories of bravery, resilience, loss, and renewal that are central to this tornado experience.
