Jonita Mullins, Okie Heritage director, grew up in small town Oklahoma and appreciates the great Oklahoma values and heritage she learned from her parents. Steeped in a strong sense of time and place, she recognizes the importance of knowing your past in order to create your future. It is her desire to preserve our history and heritage for our children and to share it with you and your family.
Through writing, art, research, re-enactments and historical tours, Jonita offers you this great Oklahoma heritage and Muskogee's Okie culture. Her work draws upon and is refined by a celebration of our colorful history. For how can we know who we are without our past?
Oklahoma has a unique history and heritage and great natural beauty that has been described as "the most American" of all the states. Here you can find buffalo, elk and deer roaming freely on the open range or among the silent woods. It is a place where scenic rivers drift and tumble through the mists of ancient hills while bald eagles soar overhead.
At Okie Heritage, we celebrate our state's rich diversity, natural beauty, colorful Western history, Southern hospitality and down-to-earth family values. From our headquarters in Muskogee, the "capital of Indian Territory," and the center of "Okie Nation," we welcome visitors to come share all that is great about this town and this state.
