When Ann Johnson, of Osage descent, who resides in Southeast Texas, purchased her raffle ticket last year for a chance on a woman’s regalia, she thought that it would be a nice contribution for a worthy cause — the James Bigheart statue at the Osage Tribal Museum.

When her name was drawn during the Christmas Extravaganza on Dec. 6, Osage Tribal Museum Director Kathryn Red Corn said Johnson’s granddaughter was very excited for her grandmother.

A man’s outfit will be raffled off at noon June 2. Tickets are on sale at the museum. For information call 918-287-5441.
