Error in Osage Constitution reprint prompts second reprint scheduled for early this year

A reprinting of the Osage Constitution by the ON Attorney General’s office inadvertently left off the last page, which is Article XXIV, the Certificate of Adoption.

The Osage Constitution was reprinted this year to update the document to include recent amendments made by the Osage electorate. Per a press release from the AG’s office, the omission of the last page does not affect the substance of the Constitution, but it is an error that needs to be corrected.

The last page of the document includes the Osage Nation Constitutional Referendum Election Results from March 11, 2006, as well as the signatures of the 31st Osage Tribal Council and Principal Chief Jim Gray and Assistant Principal Chief Kenneth H. Bighorse.

“The Office of the Attorney General accepts responsibility for this inaccuracy and extends apologies for any inconvenience or confusion it may cause, and most importantly apologizes to those persons whose names appear in such an important and historic document and which were inadvertently left out in the re-print,” per the release. “The Office of the Attorney General will reprint a corrected copy after the special election in early 2017. We will issue another release alerting the public when the reprint is available and where to get a copy.”
