Muscogee (Creek) Nation cancels Living Legends ceremony
Ceremony cancelled this year due to public health and safety concerns
OKMULGEE, Oklahoma — For the health and safety of our Muscogee (Creek) citizens and especially our elders, the Muscogee (Creek) Nation has decided to cancel the annual Living Legends ceremony.
COVID-19 has created an unprecedented situation that requires the Nation to take a look at the well-being of our elders and what means need to be taken in order to protect them. The Nation has determined it would not be in the best interest of our people to risk public health and safety by holding the event this year.
MCN apologizes for this inconvenience while also asking its citizens to continue practicing healthy social habits including social distancing, wearing masks when in public and proper hand hygiene.
