United Indian Nations hold first meeting in Oklahoma

The United Indian Nations held its initial meeting in Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

The group seeks to represent tribes in Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas and advocate for their interests at the state and federal level. George Tiger, the speaker of the Muscogee Nation Council, serves as president.

In Oklahoma, the group hopes to work with the Native American Caucus. A lobbyist will represent the group on a pro bono basis when the Legislature convenes on February 5.

The group's next meeting takes place in Tulsa in April.
