“Oklahoma Ducks”

Posted on

Here is a shot of our “Oklahoma” ducks enjoying a beautiful day on the water in the old Botanical Gardens Park.

Although the park was beautiful and I so enjoyed photographing any and everything I could…I know the new park will be just wonderful and will be beckoning myself along with many other photographers to get out and get busy taking pictures! There are so many wonderful people, places and things to photograph, here in Oklahoma…  Until then, I will have many snapshots from days gone by. Happy picture taking!

Although Vinita was not incorporated until 1871, there were a great number of settlers in the area before then. Not far from Vinita, Cabin Creek was the site of a huge Civil War battle. In 1864, Confederate forces captured over 100 wagons, about 720 mules and other goods valued at $1,500,000.  You can visit the battle site, which is open daily.

Swimmer Schoolhouse

The Cherokee Nation has long emphasized education as a tool for survival. During the 1800s, the literacy level of the Cherokee Nation was higher than Texas or Arkansas. Literacy was spurred on by the use of Sequoyah’s syllabary, which aided Cherokee speakers in immediate literacy, enabling citizens to read the Cherokee Advocate newspaper and to keep abreast of the Nation’s issues and events.
