Native Americans to hold Capitol protest

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ A group of Native American parents and supporters will rally at the state Capitol to deliver a petition against the governor to her office and host a protest against treatment of Native American culture in the state.

Oklahoma Eradicating Offensive Native Mascotry is delivering 8,000 petition signatures to Gov. Mary Fallin's office on Monday. The petition calls for repairing the relationship between the state government and its indigenous people, which the group says has been strained.

According to a spokeswoman, the group requested a meeting with the governor, but was told it would be a few months before she was available.

A spokesman for the governor did not immediately return a call for comment.
