Brad Clonch and Quin Tran open the latest episode of CNTV News with a story about a horse racing star in the Chickasaw Nation. Chickasaw citizen Andrew Smith’s horse, Wicked Courage, was on a winning streak – the American quarter horse raced and finished first for 11 straight months. Once broken, the horse’s speed and ability was evident, and in 2013 he almost won the Triple Crown, which in quarter horse racing includes the Kansas Futurity, the Rainbow Futurity, and the All-American Futurity, all at Ruidoso Downs, New Mexico. Wicked Courage is currently resting after knee surgery, but his first race back will be at Remington Park in Oklahoma City later this month. A new activity book is here just in time for spring break – Chickasaw Journeys, designed for kids aged five to twelve, uses a variety of methods to share the Chickasaw language, history and culture. Chickasaw youth are invited to participate in activities, art lessons and crafts at the Youth Arts Month event on Saturday, March 29 at the Chickasaw Community Center in Ada. The Chickasaw Cultural Center will also play host to a fun celebration this month. From March 10 to March 23, the Three Sisters Festival will pay homage to the traditional “three sisters” of corn, beans and squash. Festivalgoers can participate in horticulture-related events, as well as activities like stomp dance, games and storytelling. One of the three sisters, corn, can be used for a variety of purposes – participate in a corn husk doll-making class at the Chickasaw Council House in Tishomingo as part of the cultural education classes offered the first Saturday afternoon of every month.
