Tribal sovereignty requires ongoing vigilance, and every Chickasaw citizen has a role in keeping our government strong. In this episode of Thrive, we explore ways in which Chickasaws are actively engaged in their right to self-governance. Hear from U.S. State Representative Tom Cole (R-OK) and others about some of the strong examples of Chickasaws refusing to fade into the background of history. To maintain an effective and responsive tribal government, it's vital that citizens participate in tribal elections.
