Retrieving Homelands: Osage Nation Wins Bid for Ted Turner's 43,000-Acre Bluestem Ranch


The Osage Nation has won a bid to buy the 43,000-acre Bluestem Ranch from Cable News Network founder Ted Turner, restoring some of the 1.2 million acres the tribe owned until the early 1900s.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but the Osage reported that their bid had been accepted and that they were about to close on the property, which county records said are worth more than $3.3 million, according to News on 6.

“We are extremely pleased to reverse 200 years of loss of our lands,” Assistant Principal Chief Raymond Red Corn said in a statement on January 29, adding that further details would have to wait until “additional steps are completed.”
