UPDATE: Mvskoke Media reached out to Muscogee (Creek) Nation Principal Chief James Floyd for comment and received an emailed statement from MCN Public Relations.
‘The proposed legislation is authored by members of the National Council. We will learn more about this tonight, that is why there is an emergency meeting to discuss this.’
OKMULGEE, Oklahoma — An agenda posted this morning for a Muscogee (Creek) Nation National Council Emergency Session at 6 p.m. this evening features NCA 18-180 which proposes to move the department from independent executive agencies to under the MCN Department of Commerce.
This would effectively remove oversight by the MM Editorial Board governed by Society of Professional Journalists and Native American Journalists Association ethics.
The bill was introduced by the Council and the vote tonight will be final.
Mvskoke Media has reached out to Reps. Adam Jones, Pete Beaver and James Jennings as well as MCN Principal Chief James Floyd and will continue to pursue more information.1 comment
