Native America Calling: Oklahoma—are you OK?
Thursday, November 3, 2022

Oklahoma—are you OK?
Tribes in Oklahoma are actively working to unseat the incumbent governor — who is a Cherokee citizen — because they say he is the most anti-Native American state leader in recent memory.

A judge recently dissolved the Osage Nation reservation, saying Congress probably would have gotten around to disestablishment at some point anyway. And tribes are fighting the state’s new anti-Critical Race Theory law, saying it hampers students learning about the state’s long history of Native American oppression.

Thursday on Native America Calling, Shawn Spruce checks in on the unique relationship tribes have with the state of Oklahoma.
