Same Sex Marriages in Oklahoma

Darren Black Bear and Jason Pickel wait for their photographer before being married by Darren's father Rev. Floyd Black Bear in El Reno(Community Matters) I love this. Two men were married in Oklahoma under the authority of their tribes. Currently, both people being married must be members of an Oklahoma resident tribe and one must live within the tribe’s jurisdiction. Steven’s part Cherokee but, obviously, doesn’t live within the jurisdiction. Nevertheless, seems to me activists should work on the Cherokees to join the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes in allowing marriage equality. Protests from silly women like Sally Kern notwithstanding. Tribal lands are under federal jurisdiction and the federal law is for equality under our constitution.
