John Red Eagle, the Osage Nation Principal Chief made his first State of the Nation address. It was given at the Wah-Zha_Zhi Cultural Center during the tribe's Sovereignty Day Celebration. In his message he stated that the sovereignty of the Osage Nation will not be compromised. That he intends to fight for the tribe to keep their reservation.

Currently the tribe is facing two law suits based around land. The state's Tax Commission states that the land where three of the tribe's casinos are not located in land that was placed in tribal trust. This affects the Million Dollar Elm casinos.

Previously in 2001 a lawsuit was filed by the tribe against the state. Federal law does not allow for tribal members to have their income taxed by the states as long as they live in "Indian Country". The tribe states that Osage County is Indian reservation land.

The Osage Nation filed an appeal to keep their reservation land and is hopeful to hear by May or June if the appeal will be heard.
