This Saturday the Hominy Community Center will be offering a free public event honoring American Veterans and celebrating the history of Hominy. You are invited to a free showing of Celia Xavier's film “Playground of the Native Son,” a film showcasing the 1920s all Native American professional football team the Hominy Indians. The event will begin at 6pm with free food, drinks, and live music, followed by a presentation recognizing veterans for Armed Forces Day.
Administrative Business Manager for Big Sky Ranch and community center committee member April Brown has more of the details.
The presentation before the film will feature guest speakers Rex Duncan, Charles O'Leary, and Joe Hawkins, along with distinguished member from the Osage Nation.
In the event of inclement weather the showing will be moved indoors. Make sure to show up early to reserve your spot for the show.
The event would not be possible without the support of the community; Crystal Bay Marina donated the food for the event, Big Sky Ranch's Gary Lanham is an executive sponsor, along with C&G's and Sign World.
