Daily Oklahoman Features Cherokee Heritage Center

The Daily Oklahoman, Oklahoma's largest newspaper, ran a full page, full color story on the back of the sports section about the Cherokee Heritage Center's newest exhibit, "Cherokee Athletes."

Curator Mickel Yantz, in addition to being pleased at this tremendous level of coverage, had this to say: "It's gratifying, to say the least, but this couldn't have happened without support from the Cherokee Nation, volunters who donated artifacts and personal stories, and our own staff."

The Cherokee Heritage Center also thanks: Sequoyah High School, Cherokee Phoenix, Northeastern State University, Tennessee Titans, Conners University, Will Rogers Museum, Thunderbird Bowling Alley, Dan Agent, Calico Family, Dr. Brad Cobb, Hammer Family, Chris Houston, Brand Johnson, Killer Family, Jim Pate, Bryan Pollard, Virginia Russell, Cecil Sharp, Becky Barrows Smythe, Eunice Soap, Joe Thornton, Wilson Vann, Shirley and Shoat Webster, Parker and Rider Weavel, and Margaret Yattanzo.
