Osiyo, Voices of the Cherokee People

"Osiyo, Voices of the Cherokee People," is filming a feature on me. I'm both honored and pumped about this. They're the broadcasting arm of the Cherokee Nation, and they've won several Heartland Emmy Awards, three just recently. We shot down in the Arkansas River bottoms at what remains of Cherokee America Rogers' home. I used it as a setting in both in Maud's Line and Cherokee America, and we got to go inside it, something I've been wanting to do for years. We'll film more the next time I'm in Oklahoma. And the program will air next year. PBS and other stations carry Osiyo TV in Oklahoma and Arkansas. But you can stream it several other places. I watch it on YouTube. For those of you not fortunate enough to be born Cherokee, "Osiyo" is "Hello."
