Who we are:
We are an organization made up of individuals who, Scottish or not, love Scottish culture and strive to share that love with others in the state of Oklahoma. USCO brings together those interested in Celtic music, athletics, dance, ancestral research, and much more to celebrate the unique heritage of Scotland. Throughout the year, we host a wide variety of events, including the Iron Thistle Scottish Festival, Burns Night, ceilidhs (kay-lee, Gaelic for party), and more. Join us!
Where we came from:
United Scottish Clans of Oklahoma is a 501©(3) organization founded in 1986 by Jerrel Murray and a small group of Scottish enthusiasts to educate the Oklahoma public about Scottish heritage. In under 30 years, USCO has organized 15 Scottish festivals, held in Midwest City, Edmond, and Yukon, a yearly Burns Night, and countless other events. In 1998, Jerrel Murray designed the official Oklahoma tartan — a field of blue with bands of red, black, gold, and white, pictured above. The organization has assisted a variety of Scottish activities in central Oklahoma, including pipe and drum bands, Scottish Highland and country dance, ancestral research, and Gaelic studies.
