Cheyenne chiefs share culture with students

Three traditional Cheyenne chiefs visited the Cheyenne Middle School in Edmond, Oklahoma, on Monday.

Harvey Pratt, George Old Crow and Lawrence Hart shared their culture with about 250 sixth-graders. Students helped Old Crow erect a teepee. Pratt displayed his artwork and gave a presentation on his work as a forensic sculptor. Hart showed students historical tribal items, including a peace medal that dates to 1801.

This was the sixth visit by Cheyenne leaders to the school since it opened in 1999.
