Welcome to the Osage Blog!

Where the Osage Discussions left off, let the new Osage Blog begin. We're here to keep the Osage Nation government honest, to protect the Shareholders and give a voice to the members of the Osage Tribal community. Let us know what you think about what is happening and why.

OPEN Disclosure: The Osage Blog is not affiliated in any way with the Osage News, the official newspaper of the Osage Nation or the Osage Nation Government including any of its instrumentalities or affiliates.

A HUGE thanks goes out to the Osage News for graciously including us on their Resources web page located at http://osagenews.org/resource/osage-pre-election-news We do wish to clarify that this is not the personal blog of just one person or persons because it has been set up as an online communication center in service to all Osages so that we have a place to find out information about what is going on with other Osages around the country, in Osage County and to share our views about what is happening on a daily basis with the new Osage Nation government and its various divisions or entities.

We're ONE YEAR old today,  June 18th, 2014! A BIG THANKS to all of you who are making the Osage Blog an active communication tool for Osages all over the world. Thanks to your participation, we can now report that the Osage Blog has the number one (#1) listing on Google and Bing! We have had 4,743 total published comments in the last year registered on 36 main blog posts. Our statistics for the month are as follows:

New Topic: Osage Casino Build Out

Is it fair that the Chief has a consulting company working for him and that Manhattan Builders (an Osage, LLC., subsidiary) is subcontracting the work rather than building it direct as a company?  What do you think about this situation?
