ANADARKO – Delaware Nation Cultural Preservation Department held the Annual Bigfoot Storytelling Event on Friday, October 18, 2019, at Randlett Park. There was an amazing turnout at this year’s event! The community loves Bigfoot and the continually growing crowd in attendance at each event proves it. There are Bigfoot stories among Native people from Canada to the southern borders of the US. Bigfoot’s relation to us is through encounters and oral traditions. We know Bigfoot’s here and for many Native people, we encounter them more than we share. In a way, Native people are sort of protective of them. Bigfoot made an appearance at the event for the whole community to see! Families and friends met and posed for photos with the giant footed legend. If you weren’t snapping photos with Bigfoot, you were probably enjoying one of the many great activities/booths, such as: bounce houses, pumpkin painting, face painting, cornhole, hayride, Connect 4 basketball, Bigfoot calling contest, 5k zombie run, costume contests, kettle corn pop corn, Bigfoot height challenge and many booths filled with beautiful jewelry, artifacts and tasty treats! Congratulations to all the winners of the Bigfoot Calling Contest! The winner was returning champion and Delaware Nation’s own Anne Marie Pemberton. Congratulations to Anne and to the winners of the Kids Costume Contest. The costumes were amazing! Kids showed up as Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, The Jackal, Bigfoot, headless ghouls, skeletons and more! Their hard work and attention to detail paid off. Many thanks to all of the vendors for setting up and helping make this event great. Pete Buffalohead of the Native Oklahoma Bigfoot Research Organization and the other speakers delivered amazing stories of the big, hairy, legend. Delaware Nation hopes everyone had a great time and we are looking forward to next year’s event! May everyone have a fun, frightful and safe Halloween!

"Dear President Dotson:On January 14, 2021, the Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA) in the Department of the Interior (DOI) discovered a data breach on our Search Decisions website that supports historical searches on publicly available decisions, which may have permitted unauthorized access to personally identifiable information of a small number of tribal members. OHA deeply regrets that this incident occurred and any impacts to members of your community.We immediately took the Search Decisions website offline and initiated a thorough investigation that includes technical evaluations of system configurations, logs, and an in-depth assessment of case files and data elements to assess the risks to potentially affected individuals. These assessments include extensive coordination with multiple offices within DOI, and the technical issues will be resolved before making the Search Decisions website available to the public again.The incident was determined to be the result of a misconfiguration and was not a cyber-attack. It involved an undetected software misconfiguration that allowed a limited number of records related to Indian probate hearings and appeals proceedings to be disclosed when searches were conducted on the site. We have determined that searches conducted on the Search Decisions website between December 13, 2019 and January 15, 2021, may have permitted unauthorized access to 26 cases that contained records of approximately 238 affected individuals who may be tribal members.We are committed to protecting the privacy of individuals, providing resources to those who have been affected, and ensuring this type of incident does not occur again. OHA will notify the affected individuals directly and include an offer of identity protection services at no cost to them as soon as is practicable after the final technical evaluation. Any additional affected individuals who are identified during our investigation will also receive notification and support services.OHA is working with the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to reach out to tribal leaders to establish a line of communication and provide information on the status of efforts to address this situation. We will remain in contact regarding this incident to report our findings to you as the results of the investigation become available. OHA has also established a website to provide information about the breach to individuals at www.doi.gov/oha/announcements.Please contact Janet Lin, OHA Deputy Director, at (703) 235-1255 or email@example.com or Richard Gibbs, BIA Associate Privacy Officer, at (505) 563-5023 or Privacy_Officer@bia.gov if you have any questions."April 9, 2021United States Department of the InteriorOFFICE OF THE SECRETARYOFFICE OF HEARINGS AND APPEALSArlington, Virginia 22203 ...
