Osage Nation Congress sets special session to discuss report





The Congress of the Osage Nation of Oklahoma will hold a special session next month to consider removal proceedings against Chief John Red Eagle.

The report sustained several serious allegations. Lawmakers said Red Eagle tried to stop the tribe's attorney general from investigating alleged theft and that he approved contracts with a friend for little or no work.

The session will begin November 14.
