Muscogee Nation to meet once again in historic council building
The Muscogee Nation of Oklahoma will once again hold council meetings in its historic capitol building.

The first meeting takes place this Saturday. That's the day the tribe officially celebrates the return of the council house that it built in 1878.

"It was taken away from us. It will be a great day when we take it back," Chief A.D. Ellis told The Tulsa World.

The tribe owned the building until the Interior Department sold it to the city of Okmulgee for $100,000 in 1919. The tribe bought it from the city for $3.2 million.
