Welcome to a whole new year for Tsa-La-Gi LA! This year our main focus is to grow our membership while expanding services and programming.  During our last meeting, our membership composed a list of goals that will help our group move forward in our mission to serve both our native community and act as liaison for the Cherokee Nation.  We are organizing to becoming more efficient at developing Cherokee Language lessons, Youth Programs, Cherokee Nation News, Community involvement, and Fundraising.  Join us as we celebrate a new year for Tsa-La-Gi LA! 

All Cherokee Nation satellite communities are family, so please feel free to join our festivities, meetings, and events any time.

Meetings typically occur every other Saturday on odd numbered months.
