Martha Spotted Bear and JC Elliot are AARP  award recipients

When Martha Spotted Bear and JC Elliot reflected on their lives, they were just two people doing what they love. But to a room filled with people whose lives they touched, they were a pair of the most distinguished Native American elders in Oklahoma.

Spotted Bear, who is Osage, Kaw and Ponca, and Elliott, who is Osage and Cherokee, were the only Osages out of 50 Native American elders honored at the third annual 2011 AARP Oklahoma Indian Elder Honors banquet in Oklahoma City on Tuesday.
