Four State casino celebrates freedom and Indian heritage on Veterans Day

Indigo Sky Casino hosted a special veterans honor ceremony on Monday, complete with a ceremonial drum solo by the Wyandotte Nation Honor Guard.

Casino employees who have served, or are serving, were honored at the event.

Indigo sky is also hosting a military display of new and old pieces from the Eastern Shawnee Bluejacket Complex Library and Museum.

Area veterans say the event and display remind them how important their freedom and heritage really is.

"To preserve our rights, the rights to everyone in this country, to preserve our liberties, and to be proud we are Native American," says Chief Glenna Wallace of the Eastern Shawnee Tribe.

"My heritage, my family, goes back 6,000 years from Canada to Oklahoma - it is my duty to serve it," says veteran Ted Nesvold.

Several VFW clubs and combat vets were involved in Monday's ceremony.
