(Pawnee, Okla.- March 28, 2022) –Thursday evening, Pawnee Nation government welcomed a new era of community support with local city government. The historic meeting was the first of many and was hosted by Pawnee Nation and included formal meeting rules, a quorum for three councils, opening prayer, and a catered traditional meal. The three councils represented included, the Pawnee Nation Business Council (PBC), Rêsâru’karu (Chiefs) Council, and the City of Pawnee.


“We want to provide jobs, we want to create businesses, we want to generate revenues that can support our services out here and diversify our economy and we can’t do it on our own. I think it’s a community wide effort,” said PBC President Walter EchoHawk.
