Hi elishao! Sorry it has taken me a very long time to respond to your comment. Good luck with your application to OU. I finished my PhD there last May and have since moved to Virginia for my first faculty position. Which explains my lack of...well...effort to keep this site going. I'm working on some ideas, though. If you ever have any questions regarding OU or graduate school, please feel free to ask them here or contact me. I may not know the answer, but I can probably point you in the right direction.

Hello elishao. Good luck with your application at OU. This list is a home to a lot of very busy people and is thus not (yet) very active, but there are folks here who know a bit about both OU anthropology and life around El Reno. What kinds of cultural forms/practices/values etc. do you perceive to be getting displaced? What is taking their place?

I have applied to the Anthropology Graduate Program at OU....keeping my fingers crossed. My family lives in a little town north of Norman (El Reno) and each time I go home to visit I find myself totally surprised and astonished at the loss of rich culture. My latest trip (4/17) found me at Robert's Grill....a great work of ethnography can be produced from sitting at that counter.

Hi Abby, Jason, and all: I don't have much to say at the moment other than hi. I hope to be in Oklahoma (Tulsa area) in late July to continue work on my collaborative project on Yuchi social dance songs with Jason and members of the Yuchi tribe, so maybe I'll see you later.

Maybe someone can write up a summary of her talk for here. I know quite a bit about the project, having been involved in the early phases. I look forward to seeing the exhibition next week.

I wish I could make Candace's lecture. I'll be in town (Norman) next week.
