Osiyo!


Cherokee Heritage Center board member John Ketcher

John Ketcher was a guest speaker at the Heritage Center's staff meeting yesterday. This amazing World War II Navy veteran told us about growing up and how things are today. His vision is that Cherokees become the most significant cultural and regional brand for northeastern Oklahoma by propagating "Osiyo" the same way that Hawai'ians have brought international recognition to "Aloha." John has been a tireless supporter of the Heritage Center and its mission to preserve and promote Cherokee culture, and it was great to hear from this hale, hearty, and respected Cherokee elder.
