Strong Tribes, Strong Oklahoma
Sovereign tribal nations have long proven to be a reliable and responsible partner. Whether joining with the state to support education or coming together with other entities in support of their local communities, the tribes are working for the good of all Oklahomans.
Partnerships with the tribes in the communities are nothing new,” notes Geoffrey Standing Bear, Principal Chief of Osage Nation. “We have compacts, cooperative agreements, police, social services. We work together every day with local governments.”
