DURANT – Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma Chief Gary Batton issued the following statement about the new Marvel Studio series “Echo” on Disney+. 

“We know viewers love the Marvel universe, and it was an honor to partner with Disney and Marvel Studios on a project that will give a large audience a glimpse into Choctaw heritage and culture,” Batton said. “We appreciate the care and attention that went into working with Native people, including those at the Choctaw Cultural Center, to ensure everything was portrayed with accuracy and respect.”

“The Choctaw Nation exudes perseverance, grit and loyalty – all of which the character of Maya Lopez portrays beautifully. We hope her journey helps viewers understand they, too, can do hard things.”
