Creek chief fears bridges burned with Tulsa


Muscogee (Creek) Nation Principal Chief A.D. Ellis said he fears that plans for building a bridge linking Jenks and south Tulsa may have damaged the tribe's relationship with Tulsa. On Monday, the tribe completed the approximately $2.5 million purchase of three plots of land comprising around 42.5 acres between 121st Street and the Arkansas River and between Yale and Sheridan avenues.
