Tribal Christmas Dinner and Party
Kaw Nation packed the Johnny Ray McCauley gym in Newkirk on Dec. 9 for the tribal Christmas dinner and party. A crowd of 248 tribal members joined together for the holiday festivities. More than 100 children and around 25 adults won prizes in the drawing. Erin Kekahbah was in shock when she discovered that she won a 32-inch flat-screen television for the grand prize in the adult division. Jacque Hensley, the Native American liaison to Governor Mary Fallin, made time to join her fellow Kanza people in the celebration. Head Country Barbecue catered the dinner, serving ham and various other delights.
