Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient Suzan Shown Harjo [was] honored [on Friday] in Concho, Oklahoma with a homecoming celebration, hosted by the Cheyenne and Arapaho people.

Harjo, who is a member of both tribes, was honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom last November for her lifetime of altruism. Harjo is known as a champion of Native American sovereignty and preservation, and she continues her work to inspire Native American youths.
