Tribal delegates invited to meet with city council

Matt Trotter

The Tulsa City Council continues to build its new tribal relations committee.

At its second meeting Tuesday, the committee discussed who within tribes to send letters of invitation to and eventually settled on chiefs and members of tribal legislative bodies.

Cheryl Cohenour, who is also chair of the Indian Affairs Commission, said she supports the committee’s goal of meeting to work with those delegates on city policy.

“I think it’s brilliant. The city has tried several times in the past with other administrations to create better communication and working relationships with tribes,” said Cohenour.

The next meeting of the tribal relations committee is Jan. 11 at 10 a.m. at Tulsa City Hall.
