The video is at link below. It’s okay, but – kinda meh. Could have better video. Some cool stuff inside. Fair number of Indian artifacts, which makes you wonder why we’re always portrayed as having hated them so much. We must have valued them somewhat back in the day given that we sought to preserve their history.

Monday, following explicit guidelines from those ladies, the documents were presented to the public. Inside the chest, a bow made by a Choctaw Indian, a plate painted by a Chickasaw Indian, Indian pottery and a pen used by President William McKinley to sign the Free Homes Act for Oklahoma in 1900.

Mayor Cornett was most impressed with a phonograph.

“We can actually hear voices of the people who wrote some of the speeches from 1913,” he said.

Also inside, a book of pictures and poems from Virginia Weinmann’s family.  One of the pictures is her mother.  Weinmann has been waiting her whole life to read what her forefathers wrote.
