Tribal hunting and fishing licenses, McGirt date set, 1619 Project curriculum ban and more

This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and Civil Rights Attorney Ryan Kiesel about Gov. Kevin Stitt refusing to renew hunting and fishing licenses for Oklahoma tribes, the U.S. Supreme Court setting a date to consider an appeal based on its McGirt v. Oklahoma decision from summer of 2020 and a state lawmaker submitting a bill banning Oklahoma schools from teaching curriculum based off The New York Times' Pulitzer Prize winning "The 1619 Project" regarding the Black experience during and after slavery.

The trio also discusses a lawsuit from the founders of Epic against their former school and the leader of the Oklahoma National Guard, warning them of possible consequences if they don't get vaccinated by Dec. 31.
