The Environmental Protection Agency and the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality recognized the Wyandotte Nation for its work on Tar Creek projects.

“This was specifically for our yard clean-up efforts and we brought them (EPA) to Wyandotte, to our tribal areas, to sample for lead and we didn’t have any high hits in lead thankfully,” said Christen Lee, Wyandotte Nation Environmental Director. “We are happy to work with them and we continue to work with them on different aspects of the project.”
