A gathering of my cousins (I'm on bottom row right) many years ago, during a typical humid, hot Oklahoma summer, in the town of Grove.

O-si-yo and welcome to this little niche of the internet focusing on my People. Note: This web site materialized as a result of teaching myself html code. Therefore, I'm not sure if it should be considered an authoritative source. However, the images and info you find here are indeed "real" (no wannabe stuff here)- - My name is Dean, but I'm known among my family and relatives by my Native name, which is Chunowah, or Chuno for short. My mother was a full-blood and native speaker of the Cherokee language. I had the unique experience of growing up in two cultures.
