Creek/Seminoles in the greater OKC community, plan now to attend the OKC AREA MVSKOKE CULTURE & LANGUAGE STUDY GROUP this Sunday, September 13th, at 6:30 p.m. A part of the cultural study is a potluck dinner with Mvskoke foods (if you can, we’ll eat anything! Lol).
Special invitees this week include Scott Roberts, Mvskoke clay pottery artist, and Danny Beaver, Mvskoke artist who will display their respective pieces for the attendees to observe. Also, we will study “Functional Phrases” in the Mvskoke language. This is sure to be a special event for our group.
For those outside the area, we’re excited to announce that you may join us online at www.twitter.com/jeremyfultz .
The location for this event is the
DZP 360 Event Center
7312 North Cherokee Plaza
(Just off NW Expwy)
Here is the unedited version of the hymn singing. I hope everyone enjoys this video.
We will have DVDs & CDs of the congregational singing available for people without access to the Internet.
If you would be interested in one of these, email us at the this address.
-or- call (405) 823-3920 and leave a message with a return phone number.

The Tulsa Word published a story about Mvskoke Creek Hymns. I grew up listening to these same hymns and they hold a place near to my heart. I still have the song book my Auntie gave me and I intend to share these songs with my little one. We take our language for granted, I know I did. Our grandparents were forced to residential school and were punished for speaking in their native Language. Lets do our part to keep these songs and our languages alive!
