 History                ka-no-he-s-gi

Tsa La Gi L.A is announcing a change in some Council positions. These changes are in effect for 2016 and are driven by the need for some Council members to step down due to personal commitments and time constraints with their schedules.

We thank outgoing board members Ed Young, historian, Jason Reed, membership coordinator, Brandon Caruso, meeting coordinator, and Patricia Wilson, program coordinator, for their service to the Council. We wish them well on their future endeavors and hope they can return to Tsa La Gi L.A. in a leadership position sometime in the future.

We welcome incoming Council members Lisa Smith, historian, Virginia Aparicio, membership coordinator, Julia Coates, meeting coordinator and Joseph von Teichert, program coordinator.  

Continuing Council members are Irwin Whistler, treasurer, Emma Snuggs, secretary, and Kimberly Locke, media coordinator.

community meeting

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!
