DURANT, Okla. -- Representatives from a number of Native American tribes are in Durant this week to discuss their future.
It’s part of the Seventh Annual Native American Symposium held at Southeastern Oklahoma State University.
This year’s slogan is “Sixty-seven nations and counting.”
Attendees cover topics like art, history, and present-day struggles faced by the Indian Nation of Oklahoma.
"I think it’s really important to bring out some of the modern issues concerning the American Indian and what’s happened, what’s going to happen, what could happen," Cherokee language teacher Jimmy Carey says.
The symposium is set to run through Friday night.
