ROBERT W. TREPP1951-2018
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Robert Wallace Trepp. For many years Robert has been instrumental in the preservation of American Indian culture as President and then CEO of the National Indian Monument and Institute, which is the parent company of the Greater Tulsa Indian Art Festival, the American Indian Theatre Company of Oklahoma, and the American Indian Arts Association. He was part owner, Executive VP of Sales, and a Board Member of PRESCOR, LLC.
Rob was a graduate of the University of Arkansas (Department of Political Science, B.A. 1973, M.A. 1976), Nathan Hale High School (1969) and was a citizen of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation. He worked at the Nation from 1975-1983. Along with his two brothers Wally and Tom, he co-owned the Perryman Ranch in Jenks, OK, which was the Creek allotment of his great-grandfather, Mose Perryman. (Mose's father, George Perryman, signed the town charter for the city of Tulsa.)
Rob is survived by his brothers, numerous family members, friends and co-workers, his beloved dog Freyer and his horses.
