Guest Opinion. The workers employed by Cherokee Nation take care of all of us. Whether serving as clerks, doctors, nurses, food service workers, teachers, accountants, language preservation experts, maintenance technicians or another of the many occupations in our workforce, they help hundreds of thousands of Cherokees across our reservation and the country. Our government workforce is over 4,200 strong, and 82 percent of them are Cherokee.

Guest Opinion. As an American Indian who grew up in a rural Indian economic slum before my tribe was federally recognized in 1972, we were extremely poor. The location of my tribal headquarters in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan was one of the first three settlements in what is now the United States. Not federal recognized, my Tribe was subjected to engineered poverty.
