2006 Council Oak Tree Ceremony

“One hundred and seventy six years ago, the first Muscogee Creeks traveled across the land on what has become known as the Trail of Tears. They brought with them ashes of sacred ceremonial fires from the ancestral homeland in the southeast; and these ashes were spread beneath the towering oak tree (now known as the Council Oak) overlooking the Arkansas River. This become the chosen site to establish the Loca Pokv Tribal town which later became the city of Tvlse.”

The tree still stands in the Metropolis of Tulsa, Oklahoma.

    Hi Rob,
    have you heard from Sandy
    @ Life With Horses lately?

  2. Robert W Gilcrease says:

    No, I’ve not heard hide nor hair from her. I’ve seen no new postings on her blog either. I hope all is well with them. I wish you and yours happy holidays.

    Thanks Robert!
    The same to you and yours!
    And Sandy just stopped posting
    Either too busy or lost enthusiasm
    But seems she’s left us all out in the cold

    Hi Bob/Quasar, I keep telling Sandy that everyone is looking for her. I thought, after reading your and Bob’s comments, I should let you know she and Phil are fine. Phil got some more horses and Sandy is in the barn every morning. She is also in the process of starting her own business. Since she has to be in the barn by 4am and doesn’t get home from work till 6pm, there’s not a lot of time to spare. She did say that she has to get back to everyone and her blog. Be patient and she’ll be back. I’ll let her fill you in on the rest when she returns.
    Happy Holidays!
