Oka' - the Chickasaw word for water - is a short film about the historic Platt National Park in Oklahoma and its unique freshwater and mineral springs. Platt, now known as the Chickasaw National Recreation Area, was the first and only national park preserved at the request of an Indian tribe. This KERA production originates in the heart of the Chickasaw Nation and the Arbuckle Mountains.
