Public Invited to Oklahoma Native American Youth Language Fair

Those interested in Native American cultures are invited to attend the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History’s 16th annual Oklahoma Native American Youth Language Fair as the event kicks off once again April 2 and 3. The fair celebrates language diversity and recognizes the efforts of students and teachers to revitalize Native American language and heritage.

From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, visitors have the chance to immerse themselves in Native American languages as students from across the state participate in live presentations of song, speech and story. Visitors also can view students' poster art as well as comics and cartoons as part of the material submission categories. Native language speakers, teachers and elders serve as judges for the competitions.
