The Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes held a ribbon cutting to officially open two new storm shelters at their Childcare facility in Concho, Okla. Storm Shelters Inc. fabricated and installed two thirty-person-capacity shelters there and another two at the tribes' Headstart facility. Four more are planned for the Headstart and Childcare centers in Clinton, Okla. In May of 2013, Concho and Nearby El Reno, Okla. were threatened by one of the most powerful tornados on record. The storm took eight lives and injured more than one hundred people.
"Native Oklahoma" is a collaborative effort between several Oklahoma Native American tribes and OETA Oklahoma Educational Television Authority PBS station. Comprised of several video stories produced by the Cherokee, Cheyenne and Arapaho, Choctaw, Osage, Kiowa (by Charles "Boots" Kennedye at OETA) and Ponca tribes, the final show was compiled and edited by the CATV47 Cheyenne and Arapaho Television in Concho, OK.
