Letter To Osage News Reader

Purchasing Land is Good

As founder of the Osage Nationalist Party, I am happy that our nation has acquired more land. One of the major tenants of our Party’s platform is “Land acquisition for the exclusive use of the Osage People”. Land is good. They’re not making anymore of it.

The Allotment Act disposed us of power and rule and it disposed us of our land. Now we need to get our land back and protect it from excesses of pollution and other environmental damage. Pure water equals survival. We need to take care of our land and water so we can be healthy and strong as a people and as a nation.
