Indian Times: OKC City Arts Center show (Dec 08, 2008)
This week on Indian Times: Flags. What and who do they represent? Countries, schools, churches and tribes all have flags. But what if you made one that represented just yourself. That is the premise for the show called ď46 FlagsĒ currently hanging at the City Arts Center in the State Fairgrounds Park. Hugh Meade is the curator and he also came up with the idea. Brent Greenwood, who is from the Chickasaw and Ponca Nations, was immediately excited when approached to produce his own flag. Host Susan Shannon speaks with Greenwood about the work for his flag, pictured here.

And we hear from musician, Dr. Darryl Tonemah, who does something different for the holiday season, he heads a benefit concert and toy drive. The Native American Childrenís Benefit Concert and Toy Drive will take place this Friday, December 12th at the Borderís Bookstore in Norman. It is in its tenth year under the direction of Dr. Darryl Tonemah. He has been the coordinator for these benefits that have taken place throughout California, New Mexico, Arizona and now Oklahoma. Opening the benefit concert will be the 2008 Miss Indian Oklahoma City, 2008 Little Miss Indian Oklahoma City and the 2007 Junior Miss Indian Oklahoma City. Native Flute player Terry Tsotigh will perform, as well as a choir made up of representatives from different local Native American churches. Tonemah himself has made six CDís.
