On this week's ONR, schools across the country are growing more diverse, and it's causing unique problems for some Oklahoma educators. Clean energy abounds in the Sooner state, or it's trying to. Lawmakers and leaders continue to push for compressed natural gas vehicles, and while Oklahoma is eighth in the country for wind energy production, the loss of a tax credit could leave a booming industry blowing in the wind. Out of the ashes of the state's recent wildfires, communities come together to help students left homeless from the flames, and one program is helping rural residents better fireproof vulnerable houses. Plus, a trip to Tulsa's historic Greenwood District, an exploration of a tribe's history, and a look at the high-flying women of the Museum of the 99's on this ONR.

Highway 9: Kiowa Museum

Featured in Top Stories

More than three dozen tribes have left their cultural influence on Oklahoma, each unique from the rest. But preserving that history for future generations can be a challenge. Facing that challenge head-on is the Kiowa tribe in southwest Oklahoma with a museum heralding their past and using it as a beacon for their future.

Greenwood Yesterday and Today

Featured in Top Stories

The district where Tulsa's 1921 Race Riots occurred is close to being added to the National Registry of Historic Places, but controversy over the project abounds. Greenwood community leaders are concerned parts of the district once dubbed 'America's Black Wall Street' will be left out in favor of sections of Tulsa's downtown in order to meet a historic building requirement for the Registry. Ironically, the reason Greenwood doesn't have the required historical buildings is because many were razed during the Race Riots. But out of the ashes of those razed buildings and broken dreams rose a cultural epicenter, now flourishing with restaurants, recreational activities, and monuments to a harrowing moment in Tulsa's past.

From 2000 to 2010, the Hispanic population doubled in Oklahoma, making it the major minority in the state.

With a primary election a handful of days away and November rapidly approaching, it's a demographic neither party can afford to ignore.
