Tsa-La-Gi LA supports local initiatives in Los Angeles County that promote awareness and support to the native community. If you would like to find out more about what's going on in the native urban community of Los Angeles, please read our online periodical below. 

  Local community

  • Promote and nurture the historical values of Cherokee Nation citizens living outside the Cherokee Nation boundaries.
  • 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.

​​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.  We are organizing to becoming more efficient at developing Cherokee Language lessons, Youth Programs, Cherokee Nation News, Community involvement, and Fundraising.  

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.
