      Cherokee Nation receives Humanities Council Award

      TAHLEQUAH - The Cherokee Nation has been named the 2010 recipient of the
      Humanities in Education award for its significant contribution to the
      humanities in Oklahoma by the Oklahoma Humanities Council. The Nation was
      selected for the award in recognition of the tribe's Cherokee language
      program and the Cherokee Nation Immersion School, according to a media
      release.

      "We are honored to receive this recognition of outstanding achievement in a
      comprehensive Cherokee language and culture initiative," said Dr. Neil
      Morton, group leader for Cherokee Nation Education Services. "The award
      brings special honor to the dedicated staff of the language program and to
      all the Cherokee Nation Group Leaders for their support of the Tribal
      Language Initiative."

      The Cherokee Nation Education Group coordinates many aspects of the tribe's
      language initiative, including the Cherokee Immersion School, curriculum and
      instruction, the arts program, the translation department and the Cherokee
      National Youth Choir.

      The award will be presented to the tribe during a formal awards ceremony in
      Oklahoma City on March 4.
