Mary Golda Ross was a great-great-granddaughter of Cherokee Chief John Ross. She was born at Park Hill in 1908, less than a year after Oklahoma statehood. She grew up on her family’s land allotment in the area where Ross and many of his descendants lived following the Cherokee removal to Indian Territory.

Traditional Cherokee Pottery was made with clay dug up from the earth in the Appalachian Mountains thousands of years ago. The Cherokee used hand building techniques, added mica and crushed shells to the clay and used paddles carved out of pine or cherry to carve designs and remove air bubbles. Many contemporary Cherokee tribes continue making pottery in the same manner as their ancestors.
