Recognizing Native American Peoples

The Oklahoma Fancy Dancers
Oklahoma Arts Council

This is the Manager’s Minute.

November is National Native American Heritage Month. We encourage you to visit www.kgou.org. And under About KGOU you can read our Recognition of Native American Peoples statement.

KGOU’s Norman studio is in a region that was the ancestral homelands of the Kiowa, Kickapoo, Quapaw, Osage, Wichita and affiliated tribes, and Caddo Nation and was part of the Muscogee (Creek) and Seminole nations.

KGOU serves members of many tribes in a service area that is home to tribal nations including the Chickasaw, Seminole, Citizen Potawatomie, Absentee Shawnee, Kiowa, Cheyenne and Arapaho, Delaware, Kickapoo, Wichita and affiliated tribes, Sac and Fox, and Apache.

We pay respect to these peoples – past, present and future – and their continuing contributions to Oklahoma.

With the Manager’s Minute, I’m Dick Pryor.
