Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma

The Great Seal of the Choctaw Nation

Vision includes increasing land base of Choctaw Nation

Choctaw Nation values include growth of prosperity and land base for the Choctaw Nation tribe and tribal people. This tangible growth not only increases pride, it increases the aptitude for sustainability, both as tribal government and as individual tribal members.

A part of good stewardship is wise investment of revenue and resources. With that in mind, the Choctaw Nation has invested in a property purchase of what was formerly known as the “Winding Stair Ranch” or “Arcadia Ranch” near Daisy, Okla.

The Heart of the Choctaw is servant leadership. This land purchase is a great opportunity for an investment in the local community to provide jobs, work with local vendors and show good stewardship of land that is in the original boundaries of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. I am pleased to report this property has plentiful waterways including ponds and creeks, as well as a diverse terrain of hills, trees and bottomland.

It is an exciting opportunity to be able to further the 100-year-vision by increasing the land base of our tribe with this property purchase near the lovely Quachita Mountains that the Choctaw Nation will have available for generations to come.

The Tribal Council and other leaders of the Choctaw Nation are committed to spending financial resources wisely, researching to utilize this property to the fullest value and tending this land with care.
