American Indian children presented a cultural celebration Tuesday during the grand opening of the Harmon-y Pediatric Clinic.

The new 7,200-square-foot pediatric facility is a branch of the Oklahoma City Indian Clinic, which was established in 1974 to provide health care and wellness services to urban Indians in central Oklahoma.

The clinic at 5208 W Reno Ave. will nearly triple the space dedicated to serving pediatric American Indian patients and their families.

It is named for actor Mark Harmon, who leads a celebrity weekend fundraiser that contributed to the clinic's funding.

The OK Kidz Charities Foundation and Oklahoma City orthopedic surgeon Dr. Michael Wright also raised more than $300,000 to help pay for the clinic.

Students with the Oklahoma City Public Schools Native American dance troupe performed during the grand opening.
