Oscar B. Jacobson Foundation strives to share with the public in an inviting home-like setting a cross-cultural experience through a Taste of Native Oklahoma, quoined "Taco Tuesdays," 11-2pm seven months a year and 2nd Fridays 5-8pm throughout the entire year. The menu includes traditional Native Oklahoma dishes; such as: corn soup or grape dumplins dessert as well as modern Native dishes; such as: Indian Taco meal or fried meat pies. The public is invited to partake in Oklahoma Native cuisine for a nominal fee in a communal setting gathered at tables either indoors among Native artwork or outside in the Jacobson's backyard designed to be close to the native landscape of Oklahoma. With a commitment to preserving the property and the legacy of Oscar Jacobson and his wife, and achievement of the Kiowa Five, the Jacobson Foundation succeeded by seeing the House placed on the National Register of Historic Places because of its unique architecture and role in the evolution and success of art in Oklahoma. It is on the Oklahoma Historical Society's Landmarks List and is documented with a State Historical marker. The House stands as a living symbol of the recognition of Native American art and culture. Just as Jacobson broke ground in the art world by promoting the Kiowa painters as fine artists we continue that tradition today. Many talented Native and Scandinavian artists have and continue to receive their start at the Jacobson House. In the Norman community, the Jacobson House continues to be the Native art and cultural center. The broader community is brought in to an accepting environment at the Jacobson House through the cultural art activities such as, the beadwork, flute, finger weaving, basket weaving, powwow singing, and Native language classes and quarterly poetry reading as well as our Taste of Native Oklahoma-Taco Tuesdays.
