Wahya Y Wolfpaw, blue shirt, traveled all the way from Massachusetts to be here to lend her  passion about correcting the white-washing of Native history.

With the largest concentration of Native Americans in the country, eastern Oklahoma is celebrating the heritage of the Natives who populated America before the arrival of Europeans.

At the Muskogee Civic Center, Natives and Europeans alike have gathered to commemorate the holiday, which used to celebrate Columbus, the explorer who stumbled upon the American continent in a futile search for a quicker route to India.

“After the genocides, sterilization and COVID-19, we are here celebrating our survival and honoring our veterans, dignitaries that help govern, and our community that are here supporting the Muskogee Oklahoma Native American Association,” Brandyann Brior, treasurer of the Muskogee Oklahoma Native American Association, said.
