    Chief Pyle is truly a kind heart. He cares so much for all people, not just Choctaw Natives. I'm honored to work for a man who cares so much for all people.

    Chief Pyle is an outstanding person and leader. He has a true Choctaw heart and cares for deeply for all people, both Indian and non-Indian alike. As a leader, he is easy to follow as he leaves a wide path. May God continue to bless Chief Pyle, his lovely wife Pat, and the Choctaw people.
