"I believe local governance is important in these community colleges. They have different student bodies they deal with," said Bill Anoatubby, governor of the Chickasaw Nation. "I believe this will be counterproductive in the long term."
"Our history is intertwined with this community. I think it's very important for them to know more than the recent history, to go back and understand who actually was here before the state was formed," Anoatubby said. "It's good for us because we like to share. Our people enjoy sharing things with students."
