Chairman Nelson Makes Statement on Funeral Home Closure

ATTENTION COMANCHE NATION MEMBERS

 

The recent mandate for quarantine of our own Funeral Home is warranted. The Comanche Nation is following the Center for Disease Control (CDC) protocol and practices. The Nation has been proactive in all situations that calls for safety of every Comanche Nation member. This event is no different, and should be looked upon as 100% safety first.

 

Those members who have lost a loved one-

Letter to the Editor from Rosette

“When Governor Stitt took a legal position that the Comanche Nation’s Gaming Compact expired on December 31, 2019, the Comanche Nation sued Governor Stitt and the State of Oklahoma.  Indeed, the Nation takes the legal position—and continues to take the legal position in unity with all Oklahoma tribes—that the Gaming Compacts automatically renew.   So why would the Nation now voluntarily dismiss its lawsuit against Governor Stitt and Oklahoma?   The bottom line is that the Nation signed a Compact that is much better than its old Gaming Compact.
