for Red Stick Warrior Association
 BETHANY, OK
Red Stick Warrior Association is a small group of Creek & Seminole individuals striving to preserve the Mvskoke language and culture. 

We met during a Mvskoke language class and decided to do more. To date, we have had several more language classes, completed interviews about our culture & covered the 2016 Creek Nation Inauguration. (Visit our website here) 

Our mission is to:
1. Preserve our language.
2. Preserve the stories of our elders.
3. Preserve our culture & history.
4. Share Tribal Civic opportunities.

We feel that we have been able to accomplish so much for our Mvskoke people being completely funded by our small group. 

The support raised will be used to continue our mission to preserve our heritage, like: 

1. Continue our cultural and language study groups. 
2. Have a budget to travel and complete interviews with elders and tribal leaders. 
3. Business expenses (Video Equipment, Rent, Web Developement). 

Personally, we are on our own journey. With every interview, language class and cultural presentation, we are learning more about our people, our ancestors and our history. We've learned about our ceremonial ways and the Christian influence on our people. 

We would like to thank everyone that has supported our 501(c)(3) non for profit charity and would like to remind you that your contribution is tax deductible.

We are still working filming interviews, filming classes and learning our language.

Thanks for everyone that has donated. David and I do this in our free time and without a budget. The money donated has allowed us to be able to get more resources together.

The more resources we can get the more videos we can post and share.

It's about preserving our culture.

We are currently working on a few projects. Just wanted to keep our supporters updated on what we're doing two months into 2016.

It's great to see the support we've received since officially becoming the Red Stick Warrior Association almost three months ago.

Here's what we are currently working on.

1) The 4th chapter of our video series called "the Elders" with WW2 vet & Creek citizen James Roberts.

2) Study Group led by Ted Isham on Creek (Muskogee) Texts, in OKC, OK. Next class Feb 28th.

3) PSA on family violence and other topics that effect our Mvskoke youth, feat Kogee Morgan.

4) Intro to the Mvskoke Language DVD, taught by Edwin Marshall.

5) New segments for the Civics Editorial feat. Eli Grayson.

We are excited about these projects and the ones on our drawing board. 2016 will be a busy inaugural year for us, especially with spring just around the corner!

I think it's wonderful you're doing this to preserve your Language and culture. My husband is Creek and Seminole and is a fluent speaker. I'm Cherokee and we're both full-blooded which is kind of cool! But I will tell him about you and maybe we can make a donation to your cause. Keep up the good work! Mvto and Wa-do! :) Lynn McCulley
