Chad Smith Cherokee Chief Speech

Chad Smith, Cherokee Chief, speaks at Muskogee High School, Oklahoma

Goals, education, health and well-being all featured prominently in a 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.

His speech included all sorts of visual, graphical and statistical warnings to the high school students: get educated, set goals, stay fit and eat well. 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,”

Using reference points from his own life and those of totemic characters from sport his speech urged the students to remain focused on their own goals.

Student feedback on the speech was very positive. They appeared to be listening. Not every school presenter is so fortunate.
