Announcement
On February 14, 2021 the  Executive Committee of the Absentee Shawnee Tribe of Indians of Oklahoma has declared a state of emergency. With this directive, the Executive Committee has decided to open up the warming shelters today at 5 p.m. February 14, 2021 for TRIBAL MEMBERS. The designated shelters are the Multi-Purpose Building located at 2029 James L. Edwards Lane in Shawnee and the Little Axe Health Center located at 15951 Little Axe Drive in Norman. Currently power outages are minimal and the main threat continues to be the roads and the brutal cold temperatures. If you feel that your house will not be warm enough to sustain your family during this storm, please proceed to the shelter closest to your house. The roads will continue to worsen so the time to act is now. Keep in mind, you might be at the shelter for a few days. Please bring a change of clothes, toiletries, medication, sleeping bag, chargers, diapers, baby food/formula and a mask. The Multi-Purpose Building does not have showers. If you are sheltering at the LAHC, showers are available but you will need to bring towels. Due to COVID-19, social distancing and masks are required at all times in the shelters. We will be taking temperatures and if you have a fever or are sick, you will be self-isolated and given further instructions. If you need a ride to the Multi-Purpose Building call the  Winter Weather Call Line at 405.740.1562. If you need a ride to the LAHC, please call 405.481.8564. If you are coming to either shelter please call the Winter Weather Call Line first at 405.740.1562 so we can coordinate your arrival. As always, stay safe and warm and please share this information with those not on social media i.e. elders.
Announcement
The Executive Committee has approved the use of the Multi-Purpose Building in Shawnee and the Little Axe Health Center as emergency warming shelters IF power outages occur. As of right now, the threat of this storm is brutal cold temperatures and hazardous roads. IF the shelters are opened, we will post information here and on the website. We know tribal members are worried about staying warm. Tribal members that are having trouble with their heaters not working properly can call Diane Ponkilla at 405.617.4105. If you begin to experience electrical issues i.e. power outages, please call our Winter Weather Call Line at 405.740.1562. We will continue to watch this storm and assess the situation and tribal member needs. Be sure to pass this information along to tribal members who don't use social media. We want to get the word out. Please stay inside if you can. Everyone be safe and warm.
