I am also a researcher for the MidAmerica Bigfoot Research Center. I have an idea for a reality series on Sasquatch research. It could include tribal legends of sasquatch, reports from our area and possibly on other reservations as well. We can feature tribal members that have had sightenings, as well as film the actual research being done in the area.
I work closely with Paul Hulsey, the researcher that was featured on Finding Bigfoot recently. He is very interested in being a part of a project like this. He is also of Cherokee decent. Paul & I are currently working on a research project entitled ""The Concho Connection: The Study of Native Dialect and Sasquatch Language"".
I would love the opportunity to speak to someone in person about this project.

Like they did on the Schimmel Sisters and it would be cool if you guys could get CA47 TV in more Native towns in western Oklahoma. Like maybe Hammon, Clinton, or Weatherford.

I my name is Michael Landrum enrolled member of Cheyenne Arapaho tribes of Oklahoma and I am currently a Senior at Northeastern State University majoring in Public Relations with emphasis in Public Relations. I am currently working for the Indigenous Scholar Development Center on campus.

Film Festival to Explore Links Between Land and Indigenous Cultural Identities

The second annual Native Crossroads Film Festival is set for Thursday, Feb. 27 through Saturday, March 1 at the Norman campus of the University of Oklahoma.
The festival pairs screenings of short films with roundtable discussions intended to inspire conversations among filmmakers, campus scholars, community and tribal organization representatives, writers and performers.
Highlights of the festival include the Oklahoma debuts of three major motion pictures concerned with indigenous connections to place: Winter in the Blood, The Lesser Blessed and Satellite Boy.
Keynote speaker Winona LaDuke (Mississippi Band Anishinaabe), a nationally renowned advocate for environmental activism, sustainable development, and indigenous land rights, will speak 4:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 28.
Feature films screened include:
ΓÇ£The Lesser Blessed,ΓÇ¥ 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 27, Kerr Auditorium, Sam Noble Natural History Museum. Q&A with writer Richard Van Camp to follow.
Based on the novel by Richard Van Camp (Tlicho Dene), ΓÇ£The Lesser BlessedΓÇ¥ is the story of Larry Sole, a Tlicho Indian growing up in the small northern town of Fort Simmer. At 16, he loves heavy metal, the North and Juliet Hope. Starring Joel Evans and Benjamin Bratt, ΓÇ£The Lesser BlessedΓÇ¥ is an eye-opening depiction of what it is to be a young Native man in a remote Northern community.
ΓÇ£Satellite Boy,ΓÇ¥ 7:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 28, Kerr Auditorium, Sam Noble Natural History Museum. Q&A with writer and director Catriona McKenzie (Australian Aboriginal Kurnai) to follow.

When his grandfatherΓÇÖs home is threatened with demolition, Pete sees his world in jeopardy and, with his best friend, Kalmain (Joseph Pedley), sets off for the city. Together the boys travel through epic Kimberley country, and when they get lost in the bush, Pete and Kalmain find true friendship.

I was taught native beading as a young woman by a lakota friend. I however do not do tradional native american beadwork as I am not native american. My love of beads was born at 14, I am 58 now and have many years of experience with other forms of beadwork. My reason for attempting to contact this artist was while watching a video posted on facebook, I noticed his method of bead storage. I wanted to share with him one that my husband developed before he passed away. It would be a gift not a sell thing. It is my way of saying thanks to another artist and express my gratitude for the young man who shared with me at 14 a lifetime of love in beadwork. thanks
