Osage Casino owns and operates seven tribal casinos in Oklahoma on behalf of the Osage Nation. The casinos serve as the primary source of funding for Osage Nation programs, including housing money, scholarships and medical expenses.
The company’s CEO is Byron Bighorse, who has worked at Osage Casinos since 2008. He was a gaming professional for almost two decades before moving up to a C-level position in 2014.
Bighorse has built his reputation on leading with a personal touch. He knows who is working in the casinos, where they work and what their individual needs are.
