OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ The National Park Service has awarded historic preservation grants to four American Indian tribes in Oklahoma.
NPS director Jonathan Jarvis says the grants will help American's first people preserve significant tribal places, cultures and tradition.
The grants can be used to fund projects including nominations to the National Register of Historic Places, preservation education and historic structure reports.
The four Oklahoma-based tribes receiving grants are the Miami Tribe, the Peoria Tribe, the Seminole Nation and the Seneca-Cayuga Tribe.
The grants range from $30,000 to nearly $60,000.
