The Muscogee Nation to Hold At-Large Citizen Outreach in Dallas
The event will feature information on programs and services available to at-large citizens
DALLAS, Texas – The Muscogee Nation is gearing up to host its first in-person Muscogee At-Large Citizen Outreach Gathering in nearly two years. Muscogee citizens in Texas will get the first visit from the Nation this year which is set to take place at the Dallas Lincoln Centre in Dallas, TX on July 16 and 17. Lunch will be provided on the second day at noon.
Whitney Tiger-Smith of the Tribal Liaison’s Office for Citizens At-Large, says “I’m so excited to bring our employees and resources to the Dallas area. This will be a time to gather and have fellowship with our fellow citizens in Texas. It is also an opportunity for our at-large citizens to learn about different programs and resources available to them regardless of their residence being outside of the reservation boundaries.”
Tiger-Smith also mentioned that the Muscogee Nation particularly enjoys holding these outreach gatherings for the at-large citizens that may feel a ‘disconnect’ from their tribal nation. Tiger-Smith added, “There will also be cultural activities and demonstrations for the attendees to partake in so that they can get more of a hands-on learning experience about their tribe.”
The event will include representatives from various programs and services such as: Citizenship, Election Board, Realty Trust Services, Social Services, Contracting and Employment Support, Higher Education, College of the Muscogee Nation, Mvskoke Language Program, Cultural Archives, Cultural Preservation, Mvskoke Media and Tourism & Marketing.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet Principal Chief, David W. Hill, and Second Chief, Del Beaver, as well as Representatives from the Muscogee (Creek) National Council.
The Tribal Liaison’s Office for Citizens At-Large was created to provide tribal services outreach particularly to those living outside of the Muscogee Nation Reservation boundaries.
