Gathering of Nations 2014 Highlights
Cheyenne and Arapaho TV (CATV47) was in Albuquerque, New Mexico for the first day of 2014 Gathering of Nations. Thousands of dancers and singers from all over the United States and Canada attend this event each year, making it "North America's Biggest Powwow." The University of New Mexico's "The Pit" becomes the center of Native American culture for a few days each spring as Gathering of Nations is the starting point for the summer powwow season.
"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.

The Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes Department of Education partnered with SWOSU to sponsor this educator's summit during the 2013-14 school year. Teachers, principals, and administrators gathered to understand and better serve the needs of Oklahoma Indian students. The summit took place at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, Oklahoma.
