When will the Osage Nation recognize same sex marriages? Discrimination among our tribe is not the Osage Way. One of the things I am most proud of is that no one in the Osage tribe has ever been left out. Two spirited people were honored in the past. Adam and Eve is a white man’s belief. Including all people is the way of the Osage. My great-great-grandfather was Judge Thomas Rogers. His mother was Ellen Lombard. Their blood runs through my body. Isn’t it time we lead, instead of waiting to follow? I am married to a man. My marriage is honored by the U.S. government, but not by my own people? Thank you.
