Lowak Sho' li (Carry the Fire)

Lowak Sho’li is an annual forum featuring noted scholars covering the contributions of Native and non-Natives to the development of the humanities, important current initiatives facing the Native American population, and cross-cultural understanding and cooperation.  Open to the public, Lowak Sho’li is presented in October as a part of National Arts and Humanities Month.  In a question-and-answer format, this two-hour forum invites questions from the audience during discussions by scholars. The forum is an opportunity for public dialogue between Native and non-Native sectors on Native humanities for the development and welfare of local communities, regions and the State of Oklahoma. A panel of language, history and literary scholars discuss basic tenets of the humanities as related to Native American people.


  • Open to the public.
