MAYETTA: Almost 175 people turned out to walk in the Take Back the Night event held last Wednesday on the common land.  It was a beautiful night with walkers beginning at the arch in Prairie Peoples Park and walking a trail that led north on M Road and west to Buffalo Drive near L Road.  Walkers included Tribal Council members and their families, Judicial Center administrators and judges, four members from the Institute for Native Justice in Oklahoma, and several other PBPN directors of programs and their staffs.

The event was sponsored by the Family Violence Prevention Program and the Tribal Victims Assistance Program and the Diabetes Prevention Program staff also assisted with the event.
