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. 

  • 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.

For over 13 years, Tsa-La-Gi Los Angeles has devoted its energy to passionately advocating for Cherokee Nation citizens that live outside the fourteen county Cherokee Nation jurisdiction.
