More than 70 Osages from across the country traveled home to participate in the commemorative walk

Through the wild ranch fields in northeast Oklahoma Jacque Jones shouldered her three-month-old daughter in a baby backpack carrier and walked about three miles.

As she walked she wondered why the journey soothed the youngest of her five daughters to sleep. She also thought about the ground she walked on and how it once embellished the footprints of her Osage ancestors.

“Just to be able to walk in the footsteps that my ancestors walked in, it was really kind of an emotional walk for me,” Jones said.

ON Social Services department offers help if elder abuse or fraud is spotted with Osage shareholders

For the last four years adult and elder abuse has been on the rise in Osage Country, and with the Osage Trust Case Settlement disbursements around the corner the numbers could increase.

Of the $380 million settlement, shareholders, also known as headright holders, will be paid out $155,136 for each share, most of which are owned by elders.

Those who work closely with cases of adult abuse, neglect, exploitation and/or fraud said they have ample concern for those elders who will be receiving large amounts of money.

“Everybody has a different style,” said Carter Revard, who is a poet and Rhodes scholar. “I would say there is another process for Indian people… and the process is a long one,” he said of tribal history and culture.
