Since the Five-Man boards of Hominy Indian Village and Grayhorse Indian Village didn’t use the money appropriated to them to build funeral chapels by the Osage Nation Congress in the 2009 fiscal year, the money reverted back to the Osage Nation treasury Sept. 30.

Congresswoman Faren Anderson and Congressman Doug Revard both re-introduced two new bills, ONCA 09-70 and ONCA 09-72, to provide the five-man board of Hominy $259,239 and the Grayhorse five-man board $259,027 to construct and furnish funeral chapels in their respective villages.
