"A Chickasaw Nation subsidiary and the city of Oklahoma City have closed on a land transfer for property to be developed around the American Indian Cultural Center and Museum near downtown.
Clearing title to the land and completing the transfer is a major step toward restarting construction on the long-dormant museum project.
"This is another important milestone in our journey to fulfill the vision of a world-class facility which will tell the powerful and significant story of Native Americans in Oklahoma," said Chickasaw Nation Gov. Bill Anoatubby.
Anoatubby chairs the board of the state of Oklahoma's Native American Cultural and Educational Authority (NACEA), which has overseen the project.
Anoatubby expressed appreciation for museum supporters "who continue to share our vision of a world-class facility which will tell the story of Native Americans in Oklahoma while serving as a hub for tourism, economic development and job creation.""
