(KTEN) — The feud between Oklahoma Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt and tribal leaders continues.

Stitt has been stripped of power over the Oklahoma Advisory Council on Indian Education. State lawmakers passed Senate Bill 299 earlier this year, which will reduce the number of Stitt appointees on the panel from eight to one.

"We need to make sure the people on that board are people who want to work with tribal people; who are not just going to have a conflict with tribal people, but are actually going to sit down and say, 'How do we build a better situation for all Oklahomans?'" said state Rep. Justin Humphrey (R-District 19).

The council has 18 members representing a variety of stakeholders. It will resume meeting this fall.
