The Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribal Tribune (CATT) is a bi-monthly news publication for tribal members. CATT staff strives to bring stories of interest to tribal members and the communities, highlighting accomplishments, feature stories, elders, and events, as well as tackling the hard news stories in an unbiased, factual manner.
The CATT is free to all tribal members and may be mailed directly to tribal members’ homes, one copy per household. Currently, the CATT has 5,380 tribal members subscribing to the newspaper. The CATT staff also distributes 2,100 print copies to locations in Oklahoma City, El Reno, Concho, Weatherford, Clinton, Geary, Watonga, Canton, Binger, Gracemont and Anadarko. As well as drop shipping to Woodward, and delivery to Seiling and Hammon in partnership with the Tribal Transit. In addition to the print publication, the CATT is posted digitally on the tribes’ website, https://cheyenneandarapahotribes.org/project/tribal-tribune/ and articles may be found on https://cheyennearapahotribaltribune.wordpress.com/.

Tribal members receive free advertising for businesses/services and may post events under the CATT’s Calendar of Events, as well as personal greetings, such as birthdays, congratulatory messages, etc.
The CATT has been recognized on the national stage, winning media awards since 2010 from the Native American Journalists Association and on a state level, through the Oklahoma Press Association since 2012. This year the CATT staff accepted 8 awards at the National Native American Media Awards event in July.
