Cherokee Nation Newsletter

Cherokee Nation Newsletter
The Cherokee Nation is headed to Central Florida on Saturday, June 1
with the tribe’s mobile registration ID unit to issue at-large
citizens new photo ID Cherokee citizenship cards. With 1,793 Cherokee
Nation citizens living in Florida, it’s important to meet with and
offer to them some of the same benefits as citizens in Oklahoma. The
group will meet Saturday, June 1 10 a.m. to 4 p.m in Clearwater, Fla.
at the Moccasin Lake Nature Park Environmental & Energy Education
Center, 2750 Park Trail Lane.

The 2013 Remember the Removal Bike Ride is the fifth annual bicycle
ride commemorating the forced removal of the Cherokee Nation from its
homelands during the winter of 1838-39. This year's ride begins in
just a few days and marks the 175th anniversary of the Cherokee
Nation’s Trail of Tears. Get the details and follow our riders along
their 900+ mile trek by visiting www.remembertheremoval.cherokee.org

We just want to remind everyone of the Cherokee Art Center gallery's
big move to 215 S. Muskogee Ave. (Cort Mall) in Tahlequah. Beginning
today (Tuesday, May 28) we've expanded the hours to 9am-6pm Mon-Fri
and 9am-2pm on Saturdays. Come see us!

Here's a reminder of an important item we ran last week: RSU Public TV
will hold Cherokee Nation election forums at 6 p.m. Mon June 3. The
forums will be streamed over the internet at www.rsupublicity.org and
from the website of the Pryor Chamber of Commerce,
www.pryorchamber.com. RSU Public TV will broadcast the events from
12:00 p.m. til 1:00 p.m. on June 10, 12 and 14. The Tribal Council
elections are scheduled for June 22.
