Allan Houser was named the first Oklahoma Cultural Ambassador in 1984, one of only six people to receive this honor. Houser was inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame in l985 and dedicated “As Long as the Waters Flow,” a monumental bronze sculpture, at the Oklahoma State Capitol Building in Oklahoma City in 1989. While these sculptures are well known to Oklahomans, they represent only a fraction of the tremendous achievements of Houser, who was born June 30, 1914, in Oklahoma to members of the Chiricahua Apache Tribe.
