OKMULGEE, Oklahoma — Hensci! It has been a great month for the Mvskoke Nation Youth Council (MNYC).
On Feb. 16, MNYC volunteered and participated in the third annual Native Love Dance. Everyone had a good time dancing and learning how to engage in a healthy relationship. Thank you to the Family Violence Protection Program and Mvskoke Nation Youth Services for putting on this event every year!
As part of the monthly field trips for the Culture and Language Committee, members of the MNYC took a trip to Faith Indian Baptist Church to attend their Fourth Sunday Service on March 4. MNYC enjoys learning about Mvskoke culture and looks forward to continuing taking cultural trips.
We would like to congratulate MNYC members Iesha Phillips and Arianna Maelyn Osborne for being selected as the High School and Middle School Students of the Year for the Mvskoke Women’s Leadership Awards! Congratulations to all of the award winners!
Everyone mark your calendars for Creekchella on May 5 at the Mvskoke Dome. Creekchella is a wellness music festival with the goal of raising awareness for mental health.
Also, we would like to invite any Mvskoke youth ages 12-24 to join the Mvskoke Youth Choir. If interested, please contact Phillip (Bugsy) Barnoski at: 918-758-8388. The choir meets every Wednesday evening for practice at 6 p.m. at the MNYS Office, which is located at: 112 E. 6th St. in Okmulgee.
