I love seeing these signs in Native languages! It seems to be the trend with more and more communities installing signs with Indigenous words around Indian Country. Back in 2012, Ojibwe language signs were installed all throughout Bemidji, Minnesota.
A recent post on the Okmulgee Main Street Facebook page shows that folks in Okmulgee, Oklahoma will be able to see street signs with both English and Mvskoke!
“What a GREAT DAY for the citizens of Okmulgee! The new street signs in downtown, that are in both English & Creek languages, were unveiled this afternoon at 6th & Muskogee Street! Thank you to Creek Nation, Okmulgee Chamber of Commerce, Okmulgee Main Street & the City of Okmulgee for sponsoring this project. Special thanks to the Public Works Department for installing the new poles & signs. We appreciate everyone working together for the betterment of Okmulgee. The remainder of the signs will be installed over the next several days. #okmulgeerising”
