My initial visit to the Choctaw Council House in 2010 was an educational experience. Most of the time when I visit Oklahoma my interest keep me in the southern part of the state.
On this particular visit my host Verdie Triplett took me to the Council House among other sites and it was great to visit an area that only existed in history books. Having an opportunity to visit places like Muskogee, Wagnoner, Scullyville, Ft. Coffee and Spiro.
Being on the ground brought home the some of the places where our ancestors lived and fought to be included in the life and culture, before and after their enslavement by the Choctaw Indians.
