Indian Times: Native High School Grads Tops in Nation (Aug 05, 2008)
On Indian Times this week, Oklahoma?s public school system is praised for graduating more Native American high school students than any other state. Host Susan Shannon speaks with Valeria Little Creek about this good news. She's director of Tribal Affairs in Indian Education at the Oklahoma State Department of Education.

Bob Blackburn, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Historical Society, is excited about a silent film that features an all native, all Oklahoma cast. The film is Daughter of Dawn and was shot entirely on location in the Wichita Mountains. Even more interesting is that the film uses no Hollywood props. It's all Kiowa and Comanche personal regalia and possessions the actors brought themselves, thus making it a good representation of a late 19th century encampment. The film will premiere later this year.

And Caddo author Michael Sheyahshe talks about how he became interested in comic books as a boy and how he put that interest to use in his new book Native Americans In Comic Books, A Critical Study.
