We honor Native American elders who positively impact their communities.” 

Nominees must be enrolled members of one of Oklahoma’s 39 tribal nations aged 50-plus. Nominees should demonstrate leadership and will be selected based on impactful contributions. Only complete applications will be considered. Nominees do not have to be AARP members. AARP Oklahoma will select honorees.
