Oklahoma Voices: Native American Heritage Month (Nov 23, 2009)
Oklahoma Voices is observing Native American Heritage Month by speaking with two authors about their new books on Oklahoma Indians. Host Susan Shannon speaks with Patti Dickinson (Cherokee) about her book “Coach Tommy Thompson and The Boys of Sequoyah”. This is the story of Tommy Thompson’s life; from a young boy dropped off by his indifferent father at the Sequoyah Indian Boarding School, thru his years as a star athlete to his coming full circle and returning to Sequoyah as coach and teacher.
Diane GlancyOur second author is Diane Glancy (Cherokee/German/English) and her book is “Pushing The Bear, After The Trail of Tears” which tells the tale of how the Cherokees literally started over with nothing.
Music heard on the show is from the album “Songs In The Night” by Samantha Crain (Choctaw) and her band the Midnight Shivers. Crain is from Shawnee, Oklahoma.
