On National Native American Heritage Day, we're honoring Chief Allen Wright, a Member of the OHOF Class of 2019. Allen Wright, whose Choctaw name was Kiliahote, was born in Attala County, Mississippi in 1826. Following the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek, which forced the removal of the Choctaw, he immigrated to Indian Territory, settling near present-day Lukfata, Oklahoma. At age 13, Wright relocated to Boggy Depot, making it home for the remainder of his life. Wright served as Chief of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma from 1866 to 1870 and was an accomplished civic and religious leader. He made a significant impact on the Choctaw Nation post-Trail of Tears, post-Civil War and prior to Oklahoma's statehood. He is best known for suggesting the name Oklahoma for the new territory during his role as lead negotiator of the Choctaw-Chickasaw Treaty of 1866. His other accomplishments include translating portions of the BIble from Hebrew to Choctaw and the creation of the Choctaw dictionary, Chahta Lexicon, for use in the tribal school system. Learning was a lifelong passion for Wright, who earned both bachelor's and master's degrees in the 1850's — remarkable accomplishments for the times, especially considering he did not begin his formal education until age 14. Throughout his life, he used his intellectual and leadership gifts for the advancement of his people.

Born and raised in Tulsa, Ray Siegfried II left his family's insurance business in 1969 and purchased NORDAM from a small, bankrupt company with only eight employees. In less than 10 years, he grew NORDAM to 300 employees and doubled the size of its facilities. He led NORDAM to make more than $11 million in sales. In 2003, he was one of five individuals who received the @nbaaphotos First Century of Flight Award for his significant contributions to the advancement of aviation. ✈️ Since it's #WorldOceanDay, we also need to talk about Siegfried's passion for the ocean, diving and underwater exploration. 🌊🦈 His family sponsored the @okaquarium's Roy and Robin Siegfried Shark Exhibit — a 400,000 gallon shark adventure, which is one of the largest exhibits at the aquarium. Siegfried served as director of the Oklahoma Aquarium Foundation and chairman of the Institute of Nautical Archaeology.
