The principal chief of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation has postponed a press conference scheduled for Wednesday morning.
The conference will discuss the arrest of a tribal member in Alabama.
Wayland Gray was arrested along with three other men in Wetumpka, Alabama last Friday. The men were arrested for trespassing after they tried to access a ceremonial ground known as Hickory Ground. Gray was also arrested on an additional count after he was accused of making terroristic threats.
The men were protesting the building of a casino by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians on the sacred land. The public relations director for the Muscogee (Creek) Nation says the men were trying to conduct a religious prayer ceremony on the land when they were arrested.
Principal Chief George Tiger traveled to Alabama on Tuesday. Gray posted bond and returned to Tulsa with Chief Tiger.
A new date for the conference has not been determined.
