Tulsa (AP) - The leaders of the Five Civilized Tribes say Oklahoma should reflect on its 100 years of statehood instead of throwing a big party and celebration.

The comments come as the tribes observed the 100th anniversary of the Five Civilized Tribes Act yesterday. The act was passed April 26th, 1906, and affected the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek and Seminole nations.

It dissolved their courts, closed their schools and dispersed their assets in preparation for Oklahoma being named a state in 1907.

Tribal leaders want recognition of American Indians' contributions to building Oklahoma.

Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Chad Smith says next year's 100th anniversary of statehood is a chance to understand what Oklahoma is about and the relationship the tribes have to the state.
