The Muscogee (Creek) Nation held a 36-mile relay from the tribe's headquarters in Okmulgee to Congressman John Sullivan's Tulsa office at 57th and S. Lewis.
The group is rallying in support of the Violence Against Women Act.
The group held signs like, "Do Your Job: Pass VAWA" on their journey.
They are urging U.S. Congress to pass a version of the bill that includes provisions to protect all women, even on tribal land. The current version does not include Native American women.
It's part of a national movement.
When asked if Congressman Sullivan's "lame duck" status hurts their efforts.
"For us not to do anything, is just again allowing for one more victim, one more woman, to be a victim of domestic violence," says tribe spokesperson Cherrah Ridge. "That's not going to be tolerated. We have to let Congress know that each and every day."
Congressman Sullivan lost to Jim Bridenstine last week in the Republican District 1 primary.
