The first four days of the program were spent in Chicago. Then the participants traveled to Oaks, Oklahoma, which is located in the heart of the Cherokee Nation. Our group was hosted by the Oaks Indian Mission (www.oaksindianmission.org) and Eben Ezer Lutheran Church. At the completion of the programming in the Cherokee Nation the youth returned to Chicago for a few days of reflection and preparation to return to their own communities.
