Ceremony at OCU
Oklahoma City University President Robert Henry, second from left, led a program to recognize Indigenous Peoples Day on Oct. 10 in the Chickasaw Garden on campus. The blessing was given by David Wilson, an OCU alumnus and trustee and the Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference’s superintendent. Alumnus Brent Greenwood performed the honoring song. Rev. Dr. Wilson, wearing a white shirt, is near center at front. OCU senior Maryann Guoladdle, Miss Indian OCU 2016-17 and a history major, stands in front of the garden’s Chickasaw Warrior statue, designed by Seminole artist Enoch Kelly Haney, also a former state legislator. OCU is his alma mater, too.
