Through its Seven Feathers Awards, the Cherokee Phoenix honors Cherokee citizens who make outstanding contributions to Cherokee language, culture, community, services, education, health, and business.

For language, the Cherokee Phoenix selected Ed Fields of Tahlequah who is a National Treasure of the Cherokee Nation and has taught the Cherokee language to students around the world online, in person, and through immersion programs.

The culture prize goes to chef Nico Albert Williams of Tulsa. As a traditional Native American chef, Williams uses food and language to reconnect with her Cherokee heritage.

Dr. Rachel Ray of Sand Springs is the winner of the Seven Feathers for Community. Ray is an emergency physician in Sand Springs and co-founder of Cura for the World, a nonprofit medical clinic serving uninsured and low-income households.

For service, the recipient of Seven Feathers is Lane Kindle of Stilwell. Kindle has been volunteering for his community since his high school days and has been known to help organizations — even those he doesn’t belong to — with their community events.

The winner for education is Dr. Angela Walden of Chicago. As Vice Chancellor of Diversity Initiatives at the University of Illinois at Chicago, she impacted how Native Americans are viewed on campus and led the administration to recognize the colonial heritage of the school as a land-grant university.

The recipient of the Seven Feathers for Health is Christopher Taylor of Tulsa. He established Therapeutic Life Choices LLC to provide mental health services to residents of Tulsa, Muskogee and Tahlequah. TLC offers therapies, psychiatrist visits, medications, and telemedicine appointments for all ages.

For business, the recipient of the Seven Feathers is Heath Holmes of Stilwell. Holmes began a career in HVAC service in 2013 and established Holmes Heating and Cooling LLC. Either individually or through his company, Holmes provided time off and labor to elderly Cherokee citizens for emergency HVAC needs, donated funds to several local organizations and Stilwell Public Schools.
