Goals, education, health and well-being all featured prominently in a Cherokee Chief presentation given by Chad Smith at Muskogee High School, Oklahoma last week. Chad’s the Cherokee Nation Principal Chief and his presentation marked the celebration of American Heritage Month in the USA.
This Cherokee Chief presentation included all sorts of visual, graphical and statistical warnings to the high school students: get educated, set goals, stay fit and eat well. So, there’s no argument about those points. Thus, his theme was all about sticking to the right path.
Chad, whose Cherokee name is Ugista, meaning corn tassel, urged the students:
You have choices about what you do with your life and your health
He used key reference points from his own life and those of totemic characters from sport. But, most of all his presentation urged the students to remain focused on their own goals. Be committed. Give the attention to what matters most in life. That’s very sage advice for anyone. And, more so for a student presentation audience.
The Muskogee students all gave great feedback on the Chief’s presentation. They certainly appeared to be listening. Not every school presenter is so fortunate, as we discovered with this President Obama Kalamazoo speech.
