A little Oklahoma history

A little Oklahoma history

During the summer of 1920, a silent film titled “The Daughter of Dawn” was shot in the Wichita Mountains near Lawton, Oklahoma. The film’s entire cast was comprised of Native Americans, mostly Kiowa and Comanche. These Indigenous actors brought their own tipis, horses, clothing, and traditions to the set, which made the film especially unique.
After screening only a few times when it was released in 1920, “The Daughter of Dawn” disappeared without a trace. It was thought to be lost, but in 2004 a 35mm nitrate copy surfaced in private hands and is now preserved by the OHS. “The Daughter of Dawn” was added to the Library of Congress’s National Film Registry in 2013. Learn more at bit.ly/DaughterOfDawn.

Stop in and color your square today.

For the month of November we have a wonderful activity for our adult patrons.

Come by the library and color a quilt square and return it to the front desk to be added to our library quilt.

We will have the squares and markers available at the library and it won't take much time to take a seat, color and return it. Once all of the squares are colored we will make the quilt and have it up for display.

Please remember to practice safe social distancing and be sure to return the markers to the front desk so we can sanitize them.

Happy Quilting!
