The Miami Tribe of Oklahoma is a Federally Recognized Sovereign Nation as defined by the Department of Interior. The General Council is the governing body of the Nation and that Council, under authority of the Miami Constitution, elects five Tribal members to serve as the Tribe’s Business Committee, conducting the day to day affairs of the Nation on behalf of our citizens.


The mission of the Miami Nation is to continue to exercise our sovereignty, to preserve and promote our cultural identity, and our social and governmental integrity, in order to strengthen our self-determination and economic independence.


As a self dependent Nation with the ability to govern our citizens, perpetuate traditions and culture, and maintain and protect homelands, and raise our children with beliefs and values drawn from our traditional foundation, we look forward to a future of continued Tribal sovereignty and independence.
