Chilocco Cemetery

Kay County, Oklahoma

© Jim Baker

"The Chilocco Indian School Cemetery is located one-half mile south of the main Chilocco Indian Agricultural School campus. The Chilocco National Alumni Association (http://www.chiloccoalumni.org) has a record of 59 names of former students, employees and perhaps their children buried at the cemetery. Unfortunately we do not know which grave bears which name.

The association maintains the cemetery since the closure of Chilocco in 1980. A cemetery on the campus of Indian schools is not unusual. In the early days of Indian schools it was almost a necessity due to impoverishment, distance of families from schools and transportation.

The annual Chilocco Indian School reunion, which is held each year since 1894 with the first graduating class, will include a memorial service at the cemetery in 2018 to honor our brothers and sisters long buried there but not forgotten. Future plans include fund raising to erect a memorial monument with the 59 names inscribed. The cemetery will be mentioned in the Chilocco documentary to be completed prior to May 2018."
