Get ready to explore Oklahoma’s Native American and western cultures with Oklahoma Today’s July/August 2019 edition, “The Indians & Cowboys Issue!” Travel along with Megan Rossman as she explores the one-of-a-kind Native American art collection housed at the Oklahoma Judicial Center, home of the Oklahoma Supreme Court. Learn how Oklahoma—from the 101 Ranch to Will Rogers, Ben Johnson, James Garner, and even Teddy Roosevelt—helped give birth to that most enduring of film genres, the Western, in Susan Dragoo’s piece “West World.” In “The Policeman,” Kickapoo comic book artist Arigon Starr illustrates a see-it-to-believe-it tale of Choctaw origins. Cherokee writer Graham Lee Brewer follows the career of country legend Sammi Smith, who grew up in Guymon, learned to do her hair and makeup from drag queens in Oklahoma City, and went on to superstardom with the song “Help Me Make It Through the Night.” And discover the newly reopened Citizen Potawatomi Nation Cultural Heritage Center in Shawnee, which almost was destroyed by flooding in 2014. Plus: Exploring the Comanche National Museum and Cultural Center in Lawton; riding with trick horsewoman Hayley Ganzel of Collinsville; and sampling some spectacular beef from Ironhorse Ranch in Macomb. All this and more in the July/August 2019 issue of Oklahoma Today.
