Charlotte Harjo Scholarship Fund
Once again, the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma Trust Fund Board is
sponsoring a fund raiser in memory of long time tribal employee,
Charlotte Harjo. Charlotte worked for over 15 years in the Judgment
Fund office administering applications for Higher Education scholarships
for tribal students. To honor her dedicated service to the Nation, a
scholarship fund will be raised in her name to benefit a tribal citizen
enrolled full-time in an institute of higher education during the spring of 2014.
All of the funds raised will be solely for the scholarship. Any amount will be appreciated. This will be
the fifth year for this scholarship.
Donations can be made the "Charlotte Harjo Scholarship Fund" and submitted to the Treasury
Department at the Seminole Nation Complex in Wewoka, Oklahoma or mailed to Seminole Nation of
Oklahoma, Attn: Treasury Department, P.O. Box 1498, Wewoka, OK 74884. For more information,
contact the Treasury Department at 405-257-7211.
Applications are due by December 15th, 2013.

Renew the Special Diabetes Program for Indians this Year
The Special Diabetes Program for Indians (SDPI), created by Congress to prevent and treat type 2 diabetes i tribal communities, expires in 2014. The Native American death rate due to diabetes is 1.6 times higher than the general U.S. population.
SDPI is getting real results an saving taxpayer dollars: the risk of cardiovascular disease has decreased and the incident rates of diabetes related kidney disease fell 28% - greater than for any other racial group. This means significant cost savings for Medicare, Medicaid and the Indian Heath Service. SDPI draws on locally-driven, culturally-appropriate programming. It is one of our nation's most effective federal efforts in combating diabetes and results in significant long-term health care savings.
Why we need a Multiyear Renewal of SDPI NOW:
If Congress does not act this year, Tribes will lose SDPI programs, and staff, and reverse the positive health outcome gained through SDPI's innovative approaches. Please support SDPI renewal this year.
Please join us at Seminole Nation Days to fill out a post card to keep this program alive.
