Jackson, Cecelia Miksekwe: Walks On

Mayetta, Kansas

Drum services were held for CECELIA MIKSEKWE JACKSON, 88, on June 1, at her home. Interment was held on June 2, at Potts Cemetery on the Prairie Band of Potawatomi reservation in Kansas. Cecelia passed away May 29, 2011, at a Topeka, Kansas, hospital.
   
Cecelia was born on the Prairie Band of Potawatomi reservation in Kansas and lived all of her life there. She was a life-long member of the Drum Religion and was dedicated to the teaching of Potawatomi ways and preserving the language. It was through her efforts that the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation (PBPN) Language Department began in 1998. “Meeks” was noted for having the ability to comprehend and bridge together four languages – Potawatomi, Odawa, Ojibwe and English – for use in composition, which was then used to teach the language and culture to others. “Meeks” also worked at Slimaker Dress Factory for many years and at the PBPN Bingo Hall. She was also a member of the We-Ta-Se Post #410 American Legion Auxiliary. (Potawatomi Traveling Times, June 15, 2011)
