"Native Americans" Learning Links

   November is National Native American Heritage Month.
Woolaroc Museum and Wildlife Preserve, Gilcrease Museum, and Philbrook Museum have amazing Native American Art.
In the Choctaw language "okla" means "people" and "humma" means "red".
Today "The State of Oklahoma" literally means "The state belonging to Red People".
   I am a member of the Choctaw Nation, Ms. Cayla is a member of the Cherokee Nation, and Ms. Julie is a member of the Muscogee Creek Nation.
If your child or family would like to share their Native American heritage please feel free to email me.
If they have attended any Native American cultural events you may email me photos.
