The United Osages of Southern California is hosting a virtual meeting on Saturday, Dec. 10, with presenters from the Osage Nation government in Oklahoma.
UOSC Chairman Greg Clavier announced the virtual meeting will be held on Zoom starting at 1 p.m. Pacific Time featuring ON government officials. Fellow California Osage Aimee Inglis is also co-hosting the meeting with Clavier as with prior virtual meetings.
This is the third UOSC virtual meeting held in recent years with the first two held due to the COVID-19 pandemic and gathering restrictions in California at the time. The UOSC hosted an in-person spring gathering in April featuring a candidate forum for those seeking office in the 2022 General Election.
Those scheduled to appear at the UOSC Zoom meeting include:
- Vann Bighorse, who is Secretary of Language/ Culture/ Education for the Executive Branch
- Principal Chief Geoffrey Standing Bear
- Everett Waller, Chairman of the Osage Minerals Council
- Alice Goodfox, Speaker of the Eighth ON Congress
Osages interested in attending the Dec. 10 meeting are asked to send an email RSVP to email@example.com by Dec. 7. Clavier can also be reached at the same email for more information.
Based in San Diego County, the UOSC has hosted in-person gatherings for decades for Osage attendees living on the West Coast or in neighboring states. The gatherings usually include presentations from ON officials visiting from Oklahoma, local California Osages or other invited Native American-affiliated organizations presenting information of interest to the attendees.
