a great turnout we had for our first field trip of 2006! We had approximately
thirty-five attendees for the guided tour of the Native American art exhibits
entitled “The Enduring Spirit” tour. Our Docent guides were extremely
knowledgeable and very accommodating to our large and very interested group. We
were split off into two groups for the tour to make it easier for everyone to
hear and have the opportunity to view all of the wonderful items on display.
After the Enduring Spirit Tour, we were given an introduction to the
particular act applies to more than 3000 artifacts in the Gilcrease collection
which originated from the Spiro Mounds, and the associated mound building
culture of the Caddo Indian Tribe. Hopefully, they will be subsequently
displayed for the public in a tribal museum.
twenty-five people stayed for lunch at the Osage Restaurant. The food was good
and not overly pricey, although some were not impressed with portion size such
as my two oversized offspring…
lunch we concluded our day with a tour of the theme gardens around Gilcrease.
Although this tour would be much enhanced during April when everything is in
bloom. Most were able to stay for the garden tour, and all enjoyed the wonderful
60+ degree weather which was true to the FT leader’s request!
to all who came out to enjoy the day!
