Oklahoma's "Five Indian Ballerinas"

There is a lovely article in The Oklahoman on Sunday, Nov 28, 2010 entitled "State's 5 Indian ballerinas turn out graceful heritage." There is good information about all five of these remarkable women - Moscelyne Larkin, Marjorie Tallchief, Maria Tallchief, Rosella Hightower and Yvonne Chouteau - in the article but EVEN BETTER is the additional pictures and video at The Oklahoman's archival webpage. Check it out at
These five Oklahomans are depicted in the State Capitol *(see image of mural above) and were declared "Oklahoma's Treasures" by former Governor Frank Keating in 1997.
