Finding America: Glory in All Things Creek

About This Episode


Oklahoma is home to 39 federally recognized Indian tribes - some of whom came to the state on the Trail of Tears. Glory in All Things Creek investigates and explores the lives of Native people living in communities where no lines are drawn by reservations or boundaries. The multimedia project tells stories that go beyond, as one subject puts it, "powwows, gambling and diabetes." In partnership with Firethief Productions, tribal media outlets and KOSU.

Finding America is an independent public media production comprised of 15 teams embedded for nine months at forward-moving public radio and television stations across the U.S. The series moves into communities large and small to invent new storytelling models with citizens who help us tell a new story of the rich diversity of America today.
