OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Several Oklahoma-based tribes are among the more than 100 from across the country that have received grants for historic preservation.

The grants from the National Parks Service total $2.2 million. NPS director Jonathan Jarvis says the grants allow tribes to focus on protecting native languages, oral history, sacred and historic places and more.

The grants are being allocated to 135 American Indian tribes across the country. In Oklahoma, the tribes receiving grants include the Choctaw Nation, the Comanche Nation and the Absentee Shawnee Tribe.
