OUR STORY

Our story proudly begins with Moravian missionaries who traveled with the Cherokee on the Trail of Tears to present-day Tahlequah. Since 1926, Oaks Indian Mission has operated as a safe place for Indian children to learn, to grow and to thrive.

HEAR FROM OUR KIDS & FAMILIES

"I know that if the Mission weren't here, I would probably be out on the street. So I am thankful. I have a better attitude, I am getting better grades, and I am not getting into trouble." - Oaks Resident

I have lived at Oaks for 2 years. I like the guys that i live with, we hang out and talk and play basketball. I get to go to school and play sports and lift weights. I like my houseparents because they help me with school work and teaching me to cook. We get to help make dinner and I like to make desserts for all of us. 

(Quote for Aiden - Resident)

Oaks Indian Mission has helped give us a place to stay in our time of need. They have helped us with food and have given our children a safe place when we weren't able. They gave my husband work. When my oldest daughter was in the hospital in Tulsa they provided transportation. They've treated us with respect. We are grateful for everything that they have done for us.
