5 ON IT
Oklahoma... To outsiders their is a picture of hills and unpaved roads. Pastors filled with hundreds of cattle and livestock. Ford trucks and everyone riding horses down dirt roads. The life of a cowboy. And for Oklahoma the cowboy is an image that is still true to this day. But the cowboy has evolved from the textbooks we grew up on, because cowboys don't just live on farms anymore. They're in the streets. The same gun totin, tobacco smokin, denim jeans wearing cowboys. But cowboys aren't the only ones, just like the textbooks say Indians are a major part of Oklahoma's history. Indians are a family-based culture and take pride in their people. The images of peace pipes. family gatherings, and doing whatever it takes to protect yours hasn't gone away. And just like the textbooks say, when cowboys and Indians collided it created a battle, that same battle is still going on to this day. Hakeem Eli'juwon's project "Cowboys and Indians" is showing that Oklahoma isn't just a place for cows and rodeos, and explain why these two groups are important and necessary. Yea, they still here. So let's get to know Hakeem Eli'juwon some more and hear this centuries old tale.
