The Great Seal of the Choctaw Nation

Growing with pride, hope and success

Chief Pyle, the Tribal Council and I enjoy seeing the tribe grow with pride, hope and success! Just recently we were invited to take part in ribbon cuttings at two examples of tremendous growth in Atoka County. The Senior Citizens’ housing located behind the former Sheffields furniture store is extremely nice, and the new community center adjacent to the Choctaw Health Clinic in Atoka is one of the most beautiful we have ever constructed.

The Choctaw Color Guard began the ceremony to officially open Councilman Dillard’s new center in Atoka County by hoisting the flags and standing at attention. It was a great reminder of the contributions our Native American warriors have made to this Nation!

I appreciate all of the progress that is being made across the Choctaw Nation and I thank each and every employee for the hard work that you do to make brighter futures possible for yourselves and others! Yakoke!
