Osage Nation Chief Jim Gray said that the tribe has been talking with the National Football League about a permanent monument for the famed Native team

A memorial to a local 1927 pro football team, the Hominy Indians, may soon stand as a permanent reminder of how the all-Native American team beat the New York Giants—if enough money can be raised to build it.

Osage Nation Chief Jim Gray said that the tribe has been talking with the National Football League about a permanent monument for the famed Native team.

“In recent years we’ve had a resurgence of Osage culture,” Gray said. “One thing that is our cultural history is the Hominy Indians football team.”
