TULSA, OKLAHOMA -- Some Green Country students are celebrating Native American culture at Ancient Cherokee Days.

The Cherokee Heritage Center in Park Hill is hosting a variety of hand-on activities Thursday and Friday aimed at teaching kids about the tribe.

Students can shoot a blow-gun, play stickball, make arts and crafts and even learn the Cherokee language.

"They really get a sense of who they are, and where they came from," said Jolyn Rose, Hulbert Elementary Principal. Also the dauntless spirit of the Cherokee, and they have that same blood flowing through their veins as their ancestors did."
