22 Dec 2020
PAWHUSKA — The Osage Nation displayed how it spent about $13 million, dedicating facilities aimed at providing food security for the tribe.
Unveiled were a 42,000-square-foot greenhouse and a 44,000-square-foot programs building, which includes aquaponics and food processing areas.
The investment came via the CARES (Coronavirus Assistance, Relief and Economic Security) Act, which earlier this year provided $8 billion in financial assistance to tribal governments.
