OKLAHOMA CITY – Cherokee Nation leaders take to the state Capitol on Feb. 20 to showcase the tribe’s services and make introductions to the Legislature, in which 57 lawmakers are new this year.

Principal Chief Bill John Baker, Deputy Chief S. Joe Crittenden and tribal leaders will be introduced on both the House and Senate floors.

A proclamation is expected to be presented by Gov. Kevin Stitt, a Cherokee Nation citizen, declaring it Cherokee Nation Day at the state Capitol.

Tribal employees will be advocating for the passage of House Bill 1040 and Senate Bill 111. The legislation proposes to add Oklahoma Native American Day to the second Monday in October to celebrate the state’s Native tribes, culture and contributions throughout history.

Dozens of CN departments will also be set up on the second-floor rotunda.
