Birthday Event At White Eagle For Velma Jones

The family of Velma Jones will host a potluck luncheon at 1 p.m., Jan. 15 in the White Eagle Tribal Affairs building in observance of her 93rd birthday. She was born Jan. 15, 1913, near the 101 Ranch. Family and friends are welcome to attend.

Among her achievements are serving as interpreter of the Ponca language, owning her own business, serving as director of a satellite center for Oklahoma Indian Opportunity, and perfecting her ribbonwork talents, with her work on display in a museum. She managed the VISTA program, and hosted dignitaries and their families in her home. She was named as one of the outstanding Indian women in the state, and has been consistent in her volunteer work.
