Osage Nation Recognizes Gay Marriage



The Osage Nation is the latest Native American tribe to legalise same-sex marriage.

Members voted 52% in favour of changing the definition of marriage to “between two persons”.

The US Supreme Court decision to legalise same-sex marriage in 2015 did not apply to Native American tribes who form their own federally recognised Governments. 

Henry Roanhorse Gray told NBC news that he was excited by the result. He went on to say: "To every Native kid just beginning to understand who they are inside, the tribe has made it clear we support and love them," 

Same-sex marriage is also legal amongst the Cherokee and Cheyenne nations.  

Many other Native American tribes, however, continue to maintain that marriage is between a man and a woman.
