Mississippi Choctaw Tribal Chief Phyliss J. Anderson was presented with a resolution by the Mississippi House of Representatives this week. It officially commended her election to the tribe's top office.

Anderson won two separate elections in 2011, defeating Beasley Denson both times. The results of the first election, a runoff between the two, were thrown out because some were cast after the polls normally would have closed, due to a heavy turnout of voters.

Anderson is the first female chief in Mississippi Choctaw history.
