Euchee Butterfly Farm

Nestled between the sandy shores of the Arkansas River and the wild backwoods of Concharty Mountain, lies the Euchee Butterfly Farm. This land was originally deeded to Neosho Parthena Brown, a 16-year woman of Euchee and Creek descent, by the United States Government in 1899 as a part of the dissolution of Indian Territory, now called Oklahoma. Today, under the direction of Neosho’s great-granddaughter, this land is being used to create economic self-sufficiency for Muscogee (Creek) citizens and other Native people through butterfly farming.

The butterflies of the Euchee Butterfly Farm are raised on site by tribal members, using ecologically sustainable methods, and sold to butterfly exhibits throughout North America and Europe. Additionally, the Euchee Butterfly Farm, is home to the Natives Raising Natives Project which provides training and start-up materials to tribal members in rural areas so that they can raise butterflies on their own land. The Euchee Butterfly Farm, they only raise butterflies and moths are native to Oklahoma.
