Guest Opinion.  Cherokee Nation has the power and the responsibility to protect all Cherokees and ensure justice is served on our reservation. That’s why Deputy Chief Bryan Warner and I recently proposed the Cherokee Family Protection and Violence Against Women Act. This new law builds on the legal authority allowed for tribes under the federal Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). It will strengthen the ability of our Cherokee Nation Marshal Service, Attorney General’s office and victim services programs to protect victims and survivors of domestic violence.

Guest Opinion. Cherokee history is full of rich moments and great triumphs. Throughout history, the Cherokee people have acted collectively to overcome tragedy, work through trauma, and build a great nation. Telling that story is important. But a great nation is strong enough to tell the whole story, including those times when we inflicted trauma on others.

Opinion. During the 2020 Democratic presidential primary season there were at one point more than two dozen candidates vying for the nomination.

Guest Opinion. As Cherokees, valuing family is core to our identity as a people. That value extends to our role as an employer, both for the Cherokee Nation government and Cherokee Nation Businesses. As our workforce has grown and evolved, we needed a better family leave policy to support workers in meeting both their work and home life obligations.

Guest Opinion. For many Cherokees, their greatest source of connection to our tribe is through local Cherokee community organizations. Today, nearly 70 organizations belong to the Cherokee Nation’s Community and Cultural Outreach (CCO) network of grassroots community groups. These include over 40 groups within our 7,000-square-mile reservation and 25 at-large organizations throughout the country. The groups focus on a variety of areas, including cultural preservation, nutrition, community service, and more.
