  • To learn and retain the Cherokee language, history, and culture for future generations.
  • To be knowledgeable and assist the tribal nation in the issues facing modern Cherokee Citizens.  
  • To disseminate information on issues and act as a liaison for the Cherokee Nation.

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.
