Welcome to the Absentee Shawnee Tribe

Providing Tribal Members With Information.

The Absentee Shawnee Tribe is primarily located in the heart of central Oklahoma with approximately 4,343 as of 3-7-18 enrollment record living in all parts of the world. Our tribal government complex is located in Shawnee Oklahoma. Our logo features Tecumseh, a Shawnee warrior and visionary leader, who worked to unite tribes in a common homeland where Indians could live under their own laws and leaders. He died in October 1813, in battle near the area of present day Thamesville, in Toronto, Canada. The LI-SI-WI-NWI in our logo means "Among the Shawnee".

Executive Committee Update

The Absentee Shawnee Tribe intended to move to Phase 2 of our Recovery Plan on September 1.  However, out of an abundance of caution, the Executive Committee (EC) has decided to postpone that date.  The EC will reconvene on Tuesday, September 8th to determine the safest course of action for our tribal members and employees.  We will keep you updated on our plans as soon as more information can be provided.

Education Aid Gift Card distribution

Tomorrow (8/28) & Saturday (8/29), the AST Executive Committee will be hosting COVID-19 Education Aid Gift Card distributions. Student eligibility includes those who are enrolled in no less than 6 credit hours per semester or enrolled in a fulltime program at a college, technical or online school.

Parents or guardians of homeschooled students, if you have any questions, please email educationaid@astribe.com or call AST Enrollment at (405) 275-4030.

Emergency Campus Closure

Due to a main waterline break, there is no water pressure on the AST campus at Shawnee.  This impacts the entire complex, including the pharmacy and the clinic. Effective immediately, we are closing the administrative complex, the AST pharmacy and the Health Clinic until repairs can be completed. We do not believe this will have impact on Monday's operations, but we will keep you updated. Please call the pharmacy to ensure drive-thru prescription pick-up is available on Saturday.
