Within any body of religious believers, there is the danger of extremism and fanatism, which lead to injustice and oppression. The antidote for Christians is to reach for a fuller and truer faith in Jesus Christ.
November is a busy month, and we are thankful for so many things, like our new community center, where we will be able to better service our district.
Chief Batton and I had the honor of participating in the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the grand opening of the Ahni Center in Durant. The center is the first tribal Family Justice Center of its kind in Oklahoma's Indian Country. "Ahni" translates to "hope" in the Choctaw language.
As summer transitions into autumn, cooler temperatures, and the leaves begin to change, there's a sense of excitement in District 4.
I for one am welcoming the cooler temperatures, we were certainly blessed with the slightly cooler than 100 degrees temperatures during the Labor Day Festival.
Human beings are integral to the fabric of things, so when humans turned from God, the entire world unraveled. This is the death that God had said would occur if man disobeyed.
The Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Department will be conducting bear conservation and hunting workshops at Choctaw Community Centers across the reservation.
