OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The governor of one of Oklahoma's largest Native American tribes says he is hopeful about ongoing negotiations with the state over lawsuits involving the tribes' legal rights to water in their historic territories in southeast Oklahoma.
When asked Wednesday about ongoing negotiations with state officials over the lawsuit involving the Chickasaw and Choctaw nations, Chickasaw Gov. Bill Anoatubby said: "I have hope for the future."
All parties in the ongoing mediation talks are limited about what they can say because of a gag order that's been put in place by a federal judge.
The tribes filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Oklahoma City in 2011 that sought an injunction to bar the state and Oklahoma City from transporting water from southeastern Oklahoma to the state's largest city.
