        Yeah, she only got one pic of him as a baby in an OSU outfit......and that was the end of that since daddy played football at OU. *L* I cracked up when I heard that. I don't know how I would handle a bedlam household. *L* We're all Sooner fans. But I did go to OSU. Just was an OU football fan! :)

                      Walkingsticks is just a family name, nothing famous or anything like that...
                      However they are known around Tahlequah, its a known family name.
                      Too often when somebody claims they are "Cherokee" nobody has ever heard of there family...

                                by Kituhwa
                                It is sad commentary, but all too true, that a great many Cherokees have learned their "culture" from books written by white men about Cherokees. (myself included) Perhaps the most common resource for most of us who've learned this way has been James Mooney, however, rarely have any of us...

                                All my life I was told by my grandmother, Lola June Lewis, that her father Ralph Lewis was FB Cherokee and was born on the reservation in OK, but was illegitimate.
