NATIVE AMERICAN VETERANS MEMORIAL INDIAN ROAD

The “Indian Road” south of Carnegie is now officially the “Native American Veterans Memorial Indian Road. 
Upper echelon officials of Fort Sill Military Base and Kiowa, Comanche, and Apache Tribes gathered together to show respect to fallen heroes, as well as all Veterans, by renaming the road in their honor.
The scene was Apache Dance Grounds with well over 400 spectators in attendance , while over 1700 viewed the event on the Kiowa Tribe’s Facebook page.
Cheers and “lulus” rang out as each of the Tribal Chairmen made comments on the event and recited names of the Fallen Warriors in each tribe.
Major General Brian J. McKiernan, Commanding General of Fort Sill, made the key note address and spoke of his pride serving in the military for 30 years and that Native Americans are always aware of their Tribal members in the military.
“When I’m among you, I’m among a community who never forgets and always finds a way to honor their service members, and so I thank you.”, said the Major General.​_________________________________________________________________________________

​​KIOWA LANGUAGE FAIR

 Not quite a year ago, the Kiowa Tribe received a grant from the Cultural Resources Fund and the Native Language Community Coordination Demonstration Project.  The Kiowa Language and Culture Revitalization Program (KLCRP) was placed in the hands of the Kiowa Tribal Museum Director Amie Tah-Bone.
After months of getting key people in place, Amie and her staff has emerged with Kiowa language outreach programs in Cache, Anadarko, Carnegie, Norman, and Tulsa (twice in each location).
"After the success of the outreach events we wanted to create a big event to support the language program and promote learning the Kiowa Language by our youth”, said Amie.
After much planning, the KLCRP created the  Kiowa Language Fair.
Hopefully, the first of many, the Language Fair has been set for Friday, July 28, 2017, from 9am to 3:30 at the Kiowa Tribal Complex in Carnegie, OK.
Co-sponsoring the Fair are Kiowa programs AOA, Child Care, CHR, Head Start, Indian Child Welfare, and WIOA/SYSP.
The event will not be a contest, but an exhibition for youths, up to 18 years of age, to showcase their Kiowa language speaking skills. Each individual exhibition is limited to 5 minutes and under, and also includes skits and songs. Dressing in regalia is optional.
Registration will be from 9am-9:30am on the day of the event. Although not mandatory, those wishing to pre-register may do so by calling Phil Dupoint at 580-654-6366, email jfish@kiowatribe.org or Amie Tah-Bone at 580-654-6370, email atahbone@kiowatribe.org.
The Language Fair will begin with a greeting from emcee Warren Queton, in Red Buffalo Hall followed by exhibitions at four different locations on the Kiowa Complex grounds. Exhibitions will be held at the Kiowa Head Start, the AOA Senior Center, and the Kiowa Tribal Museum.
An arbor has also been constructed near the AOA building and will house one of the exhibitions.

The arbor is being put together by Jackie Yellowhair.
Following the morning sessions, Traditional and Cultural presentations will be conducted by Kiowa Elders beginning at 10am. The topics include “Kiowa Family and Kinship” presented by Delores Harragarra, “Why We Are Here: Kiowa Migration and History” presented by Juanita Ahtone, “Kiowa Traditional Ceremonies and Societies” presented by Ernest “Iron” Toppah, and “Kiowa Christian Songs and Prayers” presented by Phil “Joe Fish” Dupoint.
Lunch will be served at noon in Red Buffalo Hall, followed by more exhibition sessions at the four locations.
At the end of the event, t-shirts featuring the Kiowa Language Fair logo will be given to participants.
Youths 18 years and under are encouraged to attend and participate in this Tribal event.

Amie added, “We think this is a great opportunity to bring together Tribal youth to learn to speak the Kiowa language, learn the Kiowa culture, and embrace their Kiowa heritage.”
