Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma

The Great Seal of the Choctaw Nation

We are a greatly blessed nation

From the Desk of Chief Gregory E. Pyle

May 2012

The Choctaw tribe has grown by leaps and bounds over the past 30 years and it is exciting to see this positive growth as I drive to meetings in all of the districts across the Choctaw Nation.

I have a grateful heart for the community centers, clinics, housing additions, child development centers, and food distribution stores that have opened in recent years. Our tribe has been greatly blessed.

The employees of the Choctaw Nation work diligently to ensure the needs of the Choctaw people are taken care of and I am extremely thankful that the staff are willing to “go the extra mile.”

As the tribe continues to progress and grow, it is important that the vision of the tribe be a goal that we can all strive toward – “To achieve healthy, successful, productive, and self-sufficient lifestyles for a proud nation of Choctaws.”

The Assistant Chief, Tribal Council and I have discussed the significance of having a plan for the tribe over the next 100 years that will cover the economics, culture, services and growth management of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma.

The leadership of our tribe has been developing short-term and long-term plans to help accomplish this vision so that our tribe will continue to be successful for the benefit of Choctaw generations for many years in the future.
