PAWHUSKA – February 3, 2015. It’s a date she repeats in a flat voice. February 3, 2015. It’s the day everything crashed down. The day everything was lost.
“Asbestos rained down into our store and ruined everything – all of our textiles. All of our clothing, our ribbon work, our beadwork. Everything.” Danette Daniels says.
A roof repair gone wrong had just destroyed her entire inventory. The Cedar Chest, her store specializing in all things Osage, was effectively shut down.
“It was a horrible, horrible event,” she says.
SEMINOLE (AP) – Seminole Nation Principal Chief Leonard Harjo wants to be able to tell his tribe’s story, but developing a tourism industry takes money.
That’s why the tribe has turned to a winery and vineyard venture, he said. The operation also gives Seminole Nation citizens an opportunity to use their land.
“The winery and vineyard offers a source of economic diversity,” Harjo said. “We have a lot of individuals with small acreages within the Seminole Nation, and we were looking for a way for them to earn some income.”
As many prepare for international travel for business, leisure, or volunteer activities, the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) is encouraging international travelers to do their research to make their trip a healthy one.
