Sunday's game with Yale was OSU's annual N7 celebration in which the program paid tribute to the Native American heritage of Oklahoma. The Cowboys wore their special Nike N7 uniforms and gear.
The game featured Native performers at halftime.
Following the game, Cowboy senior Lindy Waters (Kiowa/Cherokee) and his family will hold an Honoring & Giveaway ceremony on the court. This Honoring & Giveaway tradition goes back generations in their culture, and in the ceremony Waters will give gifts and honor those members of the Oklahoma State family that have helped him in his journey.
OSU President Burns Hargis, athletics director Mike Holder, Mike Boynton and many members of the Cowboy basketball staff will be honored and receive a gift from the Waters family (photo Troy Littledeer).
OSU senior Lindy Waters III paternal grandparents were Cherokee and Kiowa.
Lindy Waters III's cousin explained to me again about the geneaology. She said: [Redbird Smith] daughter, Suzie Smith Waters Starr was their Grandpa Lindy Waters’ grandmother. Redbird is Lindy Waters III and I’s great-great-great grandfather. Just some FYI.
