Tribes seek more information about city’s request for sales tax
Four tribes are asking the city of Shawnee, Oklahoma, for more information about its request for sales taxes.
The city says the tribes should collect a 3 percent tax on the sale of goods to non-Indians. But the Absentee Shawnee Tribe, the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, the Kickapoo Tribe and the Sac and Fox Nation say there are legal and factual issues that need to be addressed first.
The chief in the picture, Wayne Adkins, is actually the First Assistant Chief of my tribe, Chickahominy, of Charles City, VA… Why is he pictured when discussing tribes/nations in OK?
