Glenpool Library offering classes through December
GLENPOOL, Okla. – Adults and teens are invited to learn the basics of the Mvskoke (Creek) language during the “Mvskoke (Creek) Language Class.” Instructor John Skeeter will lead this free series scheduled Sept. 2 – Dec. 12 at the Glenpool Library, 730 E. 141st St. Classes are Wednesdays, 6-8 p.m. and Saturdays, 3-5 p.m.
Tulsa City-County Library’s American Indian Resource Center, the Tulsa Library Trust and the College of the Muscogee Nation are sponsoring the class. The center provides cultural, educational and informational resources, activities and services honoring American Indian heritage. The American Indian Resource Center provides access to more than 7,000 books, periodicals, and media for adults and children by and about American Indians, including historical and rare materials, new releases, language resources, videos and music CDs.
“The concept of the American Indian Resource Center’s various language classes is to create an interest in native languages,” said Teresa Runnels, American Indian Resource Center coordinator. “The hope is that people will seek further learning through the individual tribes or colleges and universities.”
