OKMULGEE, Okla. – In light of the September 30 government shutdown, the Muscogee (Creek) Nation has made preparations to continue uninterrupted tribal services. The shutdown will not have an immediate or negative impact on tribal services or to any tribal citizens. In the event that the shutdown should last more than 30 days, then there may be implications that will require adjustments to be made.
Principal Chief George Tiger said that the tribe had taken prior precautionary measures to ensure the welfare of its citizens, with the support of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation National Council.
“The planning process for our budgets has allowed us to be able to operate in a timely manner,” Tiger said. “I would encourage Congress to exercise bipartisan cooperation to pass the federal budget, which affects the entire nation.”
Tiger said the thoughts of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation people are with everyone who was furloughed from their federal employment as a result.
“We are positive that this is going to be a short-term situation,” Tiger said.
