The Chickasaw Tribe Changes Name of Bank to Reflect Heritage
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — Bank2, wholly-owned by the Chickasaw Nation, has helped small businesses, homeowners and community members build better lives for almost two decades. Now, Bank2 is changing its name to Chickasaw Community Bank to better reflect Chickasaw values and heritage.
Chickasaw Nation Governor Bill Anoatubby led a Jan. 14 ceremony celebrating the new name.
“In its name and in its vision, Chickasaw Community Bank pays tribute to the culture and history of Chickasaw entrepreneurship,” said Gov. Anoatubby. “From extensive trade routes along the Mississippi River in our Homeland to new businesses in Indian Territory, commerce has long been seen as a way to improve the quality of life of our people.
“Today, our businesses remain an integral part of our mission to enhance the quality of life of the Chickasaw people. We also work to ensure business diversification and economic development include a focus on local communities, because we believe a rising tide should lift all ships.”
