PAWHUSKA, Okla. (AP) – Tribal members are preparing for the Osage Nation’s Sovereignty Day, which is celebrated annually on March 11th to recognize the ratification of the Constitution of the Osage Nation.

The celebration begins March 11 with a gathering of Osage Nation leadership at the Osage Minerals Chambers in Pawhuska.

Osage Nation Principal Chief Geoffrey Standing Bear will provide a welcome address and speech.

The second day of celebration is devoted to tribal youth, while the third is meant to honor tribal elders. The last day offers the most activities for the public.

The annual Osage Sovereignty Celebration Dance is the conclusion of all events and immediately follows the walk and family fun at the fairgrounds.
