Groups plan protest of Oklahoma centennial celebration

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (AP) 11-07

A group of American Indians are planning a protest during a celebration of Oklahoma’s centennial during November.

Brenda Golden of the Muscogee Creek Nation helped organize what’s being called a “survival walk” to remind people of what happened to Indians.

Golden says she wants to bring awareness to what American Indians lost with the settlement and statehood of Oklahoma.

The Indians plan to carry a banner reading “Why Celebrate 100 Years of Theft” and will gather Nov. 16 at 9 a.m. in northwest Oklahoma City and march to the state Capitol.

Nov. 16th is the 100th anniversary of Oklahoma becoming a state.
