OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A Native American flute, official state lapel pins and a turkey call from the Oklahoma lieutenant governor’s annual turkey shoot are among the items being placed in a 100-year time capsule to be buried at the state Capitol.

Gov. Mary Fallin joined other state leaders Monday for a ceremony at the Capitol to dedicate the stainless steel capsule.

The box will be filled with artifacts, sealed and placed in a wall inside a wall in the new Capitol rotunda once renovations to the 100-year-old building are completed in the next few years.

This week is the 100-year anniversary of the Capitol’s dedication, which was held in June 1917 just months after the U.S. officially joined its allies to fight in World War I.
