Muscogee (Creek) Nation adopts Independent Press Act


OKMULGEE, Okla. – Another Oklahoma tribe is giving its media professionals more room to operate without interference or prior restraint.

Adopted earlier this month by its legislature by a 14-0 margin, the Muscogee (Creek) Nation’s Independent Press Act moves the tribe’s media department, Mvskoke Media, out of the executive branch and places it on par with the tax commission and other independent statutory agencies.

Under the law, despite providing the bulk of its through appropriations, the Muscogee (Creek) government will be explicitly prohibited from influencing the Mvskoke Media staff in their professional capacities.
