Osage Nation spent several weeks organizing a response to the Teacher Walk-out in Osage County.
The Osage Nation team developed a comprehensive plan to support Osage families and more than 300 Osage children in the Public School System of Osage County.
Osage Nation employees strengthened communication with Public School Districts, attended Board of Education meetings, and monitored social media as Administration and teachers across Osage County prepared for their protest against state educational funding decisions.
Chief Standing Bear holds the Osage Nation’s relationship with the Tinker Air Force Base in high regard. This year, the Tinker Air Force Base has made it a priority to include the Osage Nation in several of their events as they celebrate their 75th Anniversary. The most recent invitation is to attend the 2017 Star Spangled Salute Air Show scheduled for May 20 – 21, 2017. The air show is open to the public and admission is free. There are several events including aerial demonstrations, static displays of various aircrafts, and interactive exhibits.
