OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Thousands of Native American tribal members will be in Oklahoma starting this weekend to discuss revitalizing languages, combatting violence against women, and protecting sacred sites. Diane Kelly works for the Cherokee Nation and is a past secretary for NCAI. She also served as chair of the local planning group for this year’s convention. She says it’s fitting that the 70th annual convention is being held in Oklahoma.
