Friday, January 16, 2004

The head of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma isn't supporting a tribal member's bid for U.S. Congress, The Native American Times reports.

Kalyn Free touts her Choctaw heritage. But Chief Greg Pyle is backing rival candidate Dan Boren, a state representative.

Free, a Democrat, is running for the seat being vacated by Rep. Brad Carson (D), a member of the Cherokee Nation. If elected, she would be the first Native woman in Congress.
