    Fluent Euchee language speakers honored by tribe

    Fluent Euchee language speakers honored by tribe
    The elders are, from left, Henry KasA Washburn, Josephine Barnett Keith, Maxine Wildcat Barnett, Josephine Wildcat Bigler, and Martha Wildcat Squire. Photo submitted February 9, 2009

    On Saturday, Jan. 31, a Tribal Resolution of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation
    recognized and honored five, fluent speakers of the Euchee language
    during their quarterly session.

    After the invocation given by Henry KasA Washburn in the Euchee
    language, the elders sang a traditional Euchee hymn.

    The Muscogee (Creek) National Council introduced and presented
    individual plaques to elders Maxine Wildcat Barnett, Josephine Wildcat
    Bigler, Josephine Barnett Keith, Martha Wildcat Squire, and Henry KasA

    The plaques acknowledge these elders as the few remaining fluent
    speakers of the Euchee language. The language is recognized as an
    important aspect of the Euchee people because it includes a unique
    culture, worldview, medicinal and traditional knowledge, and unwritten

    The Euchee language is classified by linguists as an isolated language
    which means that it is not related to any other language. These elder
    speakers are dedicated to the mission of passing on the Euchee language
    to younger language learners. They serve as language consultants to the
    Euchee Language Project whose primary goal is to produce young fluent
    language speakers.

    Language classes are held daily for adults, classes for pre-school and
    school children are held Monday through Thursday, and a community class
    for all ages is held on Thursday evening. For more information regarding
    the classes contact the Euchee Language Project at 224-6481. The
    language office is located at 1010 S. Main in Sapulpa.
