It's been hard for a lot of people staying inside, because of this COVID-19 virus. Many people I know would not take it serious enough to stay safe for others, if we wanted to be around them again. It makes me sad. The one's I was used to being around as I volunteered on a daily basis at the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post 3073, they have almost made it impossible to be around them. I for one cannot afford to get a virus. I am a prime candidate to get it because of my age ( in my sixties), very low immune system, with Heart Disease, COPD, Asthma, among other things ... therefore, I have stayed safe, wore mask when I had to go out with latex gloves, carried my sanitizer, as well as a spray bottle of Lysol with me to sanitize any and everything I touched. As well as obeying the rules of staying six foot apart. For them as well as for myself. I just do not think I could live with myself if I knew that I carried that germ around on my clothing or myself in any way and gave it to, like a 82 year old lady friend of mine, and she died from it. That my dear friends and family, I just couldn't live with. I would be eaten up with guilt. So if some here (where I live)... thought I was being paranoid, or over protective, I'm glad I have been. At least I can sleep with a clear and clean conscious. I pray all of you are safe, happy and stayed inside as much as possible. To all of the Truck Driver's, Doctors, Nurses, any medical staff, Police, EMT, Bankers ... everyone who continued to put their lives on the line so that the rest of us could stay safe ... Thank you! You Are Appreciated and you matter to so many of us. There are a lot of us all over the USA that made a prayer chain, kept it going every day for all of you, to be safe, stay safe and prayed very hard for you NOT to catch this virus. From my heart ❤, sincerely, I will always thank you for your help and support to us.
Many blessings,
from just one person who cares. I love you all with a sisterly love. Below, if it comes through will be recent pictures of myself during this shutdown. 😷😊

Excuse me everyone, I've been gone for such a long time. Quiet a bit has changed. I wonder, if this site is still as friendly as it used to be?I love to review, read many newbies as well as seasoned writer's. I am completely different than most reviewers, I review as if I am a paying customer in a book store wanting to buy a new or seasoned writer. I give my honest opinion. If this is still allowed, I'd appreciate someone letting me know this kind of reviewing is excepted. Thank you so much,
Sincerely
Always a silent friend ❤
Many blessings to you all.

Notes From The Chief





Osiyo -

Cherokee Nation is the first tribal government in America to organize a conservation area to protect an endangered species, the American Burying Beetle. We collaborated with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to designate land at the National Cherokee Nation Park, located on Sallisaw Creek in Sequoyah County, as a place to preserve this species.

The terrain of the area is a natural habitat for the beetle, which has been on the federal Endangered Species List in 1989 and exists today in only four states: Oklahoma, Arkansas, Nebraska and Rhode Island. The agreement will limit development on the site for the next 10 years and will enable the beetle population to thrive. Wildlife experts consider the beetles valuable to the local ecosystem because they return essential nutrients to the soil.

The preservation designation, the first collaboration of its kind between federal and tribal government partners, will not interrupt recreational activities at the park, and just as importantly, it will also help keep road construction projects and business development efforts moving forward in the future.

We strive to balance our critical role as environmental stewards and as a key economic driver in northeast Oklahoma. Performing endangered species surveys has been known to delay and even halt development work, but this conservation easement creates a way for growth to continue without endangering the beetle.

This endeavor, spearheaded by our dedicated staff in the office of the Secretary of Natural Resources, is just one example of Cherokee Nation leading the way in Indian Country. Another example of how we set trends locally, here in Oklahoma, is a recent partnership we created with the state of Oklahoma. The formation of the Coordinating Council on Poultry Growth will enable the tribe and state to study the expansion of poultry production and its impact on rural communities and citizens in northeast Oklahoma.

In addition to the tribe and the state being at the table, the council will also engage other state agencies, scientific researchers, agricultural experts and community stakeholders to improve communication and access to information. The council will include staff from Oklahoma’s Department of Food, Forestry and Agriculture, the Oklahoma Water Resources Board, the Grand River Dam Authority, and the Oklahoma Conservation Commission.
These kinds of state panels have been coordinated in the past for other complicated issues, but there has never been one jointly created with one of Oklahoma’s federally recognized tribes. This is another first for the Cherokee Nation, and I am proud we are continuing to lead the way in these environmental protection efforts.

Smart business development, combined with natural resource conservation and protection, means Cherokee Nation is playing its leadership role in building a smarter and more sustainable model for future generations of Oklahomans.

Wado

Bill John Baker

~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~ Empower Seniors helps Cherokees, seniors with Medicare enrollment~~~~~~~~~~~


DEL CITY – Cherokee Nation citizen and Medicare advisor Michael Hixson helps enroll seniors 65 years and older into Medicare insurance programs through his business Empower Seniors.

“With the likely expansion of multiple new Medicare Advantage Plans throughout eastern Oklahoma, tribal members will have access to current benefits and may receive additional benefits not provided by Cherokee Nation,” Hixson said.

Hixson said about seven years ago he began working with Universal American, enrolling seniors into Medicare Advantage plans and found that the plans did not fit all seniors. So he became an independent agent and is now able to offer more options.

Group asks Arkansas court to strike casinos ballot measure
BY ASSOCIATED PRESS

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – A group asked Arkansas’ highest court on Sept. 10 to disqualify a ballot measure that would legalize four casinos in the state, claiming the proposal’s wording is ambiguous and misleading to voters.

The group, Ensuring Arkansas’ Future, asked the state Supreme Court to not cast any votes on the proposed constitutional amendment that election officials approved for the November ballot. Ensuring Arkansas’ Future was formed by a coalition of groups and people, including the Family Council Action Committee and the Faith and Ethics Council, to campaign against the pro-casino measure.

The proposed amendment would allow casinos at a Hot Springs horse track and a West Memphis dog track that already offer video poker and other electronic gambling. It would also allow casinos in Pope and Jefferson counties.



CN gets $1.3M DOT for electric buses
BY STAFF REPORTS

TAHLEQUAH – The Cherokee Nation has received a $1.3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation to purchase two eco-friendly electric buses to transport employees and tribal citizens to work and tribal health centers.

The CN is also using the funds from the Federal Transit Administration to construct four charging stations in Tahlequah, Catoosa, West Siloam Springs and Stilwell to power the buses, according to a CN press release. It also states the tribe runs those bus routes but will convert them to electric routes. Electric buses produce zero tailpipe emissions and will reduce harmful carbon emissions within the tribe’s jurisdiction by nearly 5 million pounds over the lifespan of the vehicles, the release states.

Playing bluegrass music at a fellow musicians home. Not in that wheelchair now. That picture is a month old, been in therapy. I'm walking again! Yea!!!

The picture in pink top and hat, that's me folks, after a month of therapy how I look now...ewwwhhh.... anyway, the young man and young lady are my grandson and granddaughter at graduation.

My Pap-paw=( granddad) my Dad's Dad ... made his own fiddle and played a banjo... All of the family played and sang or just one or the other.

My Mom sang bluegrass and old Blues. Also at a NCO Club taught the soldiers on leave ballroom dancing. During Korean War time. She taught me how to ballroom dance as well, when I was able to walk... long story about the walking thing, another time to be told, later.

If you cut me, I'll most likely bleed music notes, hahaha!!!

Everyone in the family also wrote music. Several were on label/recorded. I'm not allowed to give out their names or Band names.

My brother was the drummer on most of my sister's record albums. Oops! Battery is low, gotta go for now. Have a fun, great week-end. Cya all later
Let the music sweep you away, let it clean the cobwebs from your mind, set you at peace, lullaby you to sleep, to dream of all that is sweet. Rest well my dear family of WDC until next time, you I shall see.


The first picture is of my granddaughter, Alexis, then my grandson, Alex....and then oops! Yeah, that's me folks, after loosing a few **** pounds****, yep, that's me. Because that is my newest cap I'm wearing. I do love my hats, caps, head coverings, lol. So far I have 33 different hats/caps. Yes, they all get worn a hat/cap at a time *Rolling*
          Now the pictures with my lasted stringed instrument was several months ago, and 25 pounds heavier, wow!*Bigsmile* Anyway.... I have many instruments that I love to play. I believe that the Creator gave me the special gift & talent to play music of a way to cheer me up from all of the health problems I had all my life. Don't get me wrong...I worked 23 years before they
made me quit working. Let me tell you, everyone heard my loud mouth when they told me after the stroke that I couldn't work?!?! All the way to Rocky Top!!! *Laugh*

I'm blessed though, the Creator keeps me going off and on, for what reason, I really don't know except to help others when they need me. That is enough for me.

Everyone have a wonderful night/day? Count your blessings, because it really could be worse.
Peace & Love to all. Many blessings. *Heart*

Just me
Cissy

Header of Chief Baker's News Paper

Osiyo

Valor. Strength. Honor. These are the traits we admire in our military heroes.

The Cherokee people have always respected any man or woman who has donned a uniform and made sacrifices to protect and defend our nation’s liberties. Our heritage and history as soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen is something we should all take great pride in and something that must be respected and carried forth. A fact many of us know but is worth repeating is that Native people, including Cherokees, serve in the military at a higher rate than any other ethnic group in America.

The Cherokee people, like many tribal nations, have a deep history with the American military. As a tribe, the Cherokee Nation has set a high watermark for our commitment to Cherokee service men and women. As a society, we owe military veterans the utmost admiration as they have fought and sacrificed for our collective freedoms to vote, voice our opinion, peaceably assemble and pursue an education.

Two of my closest friends and important members of my administration served in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War. Deputy Principal Chief S. Joe Crittenden served as a radio specialist on the USS Princeton, and Chief of Staff Chuck Hoskin worked on the flight deck of the USS Independence.

I have learned a great deal from both of these men. Like my dad, Tim Baker, they stepped forward when our nation needed them. Their commitment to country and duty is sincere, and it’s inspiring everyday. It is why they are such revered leaders within our tribe. Yes, they were proud to serve. But they are even more proud of the work they have done for other military veterans. As leaders of our tribe, Joe and Chuck have led our efforts to make our Cherokee Veterans Center a reality. This past year, we also established the first Cherokee Warrior Flight to Washington, D.C. We presented seven WWII veterans from the Cherokee Nation an opportunity to see the national monuments and U.S. Capitol. This trip was not one we gave them. It was a trip they earned through their extraordinary valor and service to their country and tribe. The inaugural Cherokee Warrior Flight was an emotional and spiritual journey for these men, and we are already making plans for the next one.

Remembrance and reverence are a big part of Cherokee culture. That’s why over the summer we signed an agreement with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Administration to provide additional quality healthcare options for Native veterans. It’s morally imperative that we provide timely and quality care to the men and women who have given so much to our country. I am proud we could agree on this compact to provide much-needed services.

Historically, Cherokee warriors left for battle or service with family prayer. Upon their return, these warriors are rightfully recognized by their tribe and their community for their acts of bravery. It is our tradition and our heritage to celebrate individuals who sacrifice for the larger good. It is the proper way to honor our veterans.

We all know someone in our family who has served to protect the Stars and Stripes, whether it is a cousin, sibling, parent or grandparent, and they valued it enough to put their very own lives at risk. This Veterans Day, I encourage you to thank a veteran and remind them how grateful all of us are of their service.

Wado.

**OPINION: Attorney General ignores authority of Independent Press
Act**

BY BRYAN POLLARD

Executive Editor

Attorney General Todd Hembree recently released an opinion that wrongly affirmed the two-year term of an Editorial Board member. In doing so, he ignored the will and intent of the Independent Press Act.

The issue provoking the opinion began in January of 2012 when Clarice Doyle, a Cherokee Nation citizen and director at Rogers State University, was appointed to the Editorial Board to replace board member Dan Agent. Doyle was Principal Chief Bill John Baker’s nomination to the board and was unanimously confirmed by the Tribal Council.

Soon after her appointment it was discovered that the appointment resolution was drafted in error. The resolution stated that her board term expired in October of 2014, giving her a term less than the term required. The Act explicitly states: “terms of office of the Board members shall be six years.”

**Cherokee finds, maintains passion for sculpting**

BY JAMI MURPHY
Reporter

TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – Cherokee Nation citizen Eddie Morrison has been creating art in Tahlequah since the 1970s. But it wasn’t until about 1985 that he discovered his true passion – sculpting.

“Of course I grew up around people doing things with their hands, people making art” Morrison said. “My best friend’s father would make homemade, traditional bows and I would watch him cut that wood for hours. And my grandmother always crocheted, made quilts and different things. Other family members did something with their hands all the time creating things. Of course, they were creating them for a
different purpose than what I do.”

He said in the 1970s he began painting because he loved Native art and always appreciated it.

**Tribe opens new Jack Brown Center**

BY TESINA JACKSON
Reporter

TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – On Oct. 27, Cherokee Nation officials opened the tribe’s new Jack Brown Center that will help Native youth ages 13-18 overcome drug and alcohol addiction.

The new $5 million facility, located at 1413 Missionary Circle near the Male Seminary Recreation Center off Fourth Street, consists of a 28,000-square-foot, five-building campus with a ranch style. The center is an expansion from its previous Sequoyah Schools campus and will serve 36 Native teens instead of the previous capacity of 20. Also, an estimated nine permanent jobs will be added.

“We’ve served 1,700 kids through the Jack Brown system since its inception,” Principal Chief Bill John Baker said. “This facility will serve thousands of Cherokee children putting lives and families back together.”

Osyio.
Since 1989, the Cherokee Nation Tribal Youth Council has served an important function in building future leaders of our tribe. The Youth Council empowers these young people, giving them a voice for change and inspiring them for public service. For 25 years, Tribal Youth Council alumni have gone on to great success. Former youth councilors have gone on to become White House aides, get elected to the legislative branch of the Cherokee Nation and lead statewide organizations like FFA. Many of the 161 alumni who participated over the years have gone on to work for the tribe or Native people in some capacity. On this 25th anniversary of the formation of the council, 17 young Cherokee Nation citizens were recently sworn in to serve their Cherokee communities.

Participation on the Youth Council is a true honor, and I respect the commitment to our nation these young people possess. To participate is to accept responsibility. It’s just that simple. The Youth Council provides these young people, all 15- to 22-year-olds, an opportunity to be an advocate for their generation and have a meaningful role in our tribal affairs. Students who are selected learn about Cherokee culture, history and language and are role models for other Cherokee youth.

Members attend our monthly Cherokee Nation Tribal Council meetings, maintain high academic standards and volunteer for community service projects. The exposure to and education on issues most pressing to the Cherokee Nation will help prepare them to serve our tribe in the future. Time and time again, we have seen young men and women bloom before our eyes. They grow through achievement and in gaining self-awareness that they can make very real contributions to their communities, to the Cherokee Nation and to Indian Country.

Cherokee Nation Tribal Youth Council members for 2014 are Ja-li-si Pittman, 20, of Tahlequah; Haylee Caviness, 17, of Tahlequah; Jacob Chavez, 17, of Tahlequah; Haley Teehee, 17, of Tahlequah; and Kaley Teehee, 17, of Tahlequah; Morgan Mouse, 16, of Welling; Ashton Shelley, 17, of Park Hill; Summer Eubanks, 17, of Stilwell; Elizabeth Hummingbird, 17, of Stilwell; Sarah Pilcher, 16, of Westville; Cierra Fields, 15, of Fort Gibson; Blake Henson, 16, of Fort Gibson; Taylor Armbrister, 15, of Kansas; Bradley Fields, 15, of Locust Grove; Ashlee Fox, 17, of Bartlesville; Abigail Shepherd, 15, of Ochelata; and Cassidy Henderson, 15, of Welch.

These young people will learn how to work closely with other young people to achieve goals, as they build their own self-esteem. They will create strong and lasting friendships and expand their skills in communication and organizational leadership.

It’s important to cultivate leadership and truly engage our young people. I am so proud our Cherokee Nation Tribal Youth Council is still thriving after 25 successful years.

We are continuing to create strong new Cherokee leaders today who will be ready to serve tomorrow.

Wado.

SHS stoplight installation nearing completion

BY TESINA JACKSON
Reporter

TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – After starting construction in August, Cherokee Nation officials said the new stoplight at Sequoyah High School’s entrance was expected to be complete by the end of October.

“It’s very important for Cherokee Nation to keep the students, parents and faculty and staff safe as they travel through this intersection,” Michael Lynn, CN Roads Department director, said.

The CN Roads Department received $525,000 from Federal Highway Administration’s Tribal Transportation Program safety funds in 2013 to improve highways on tribal lands. With those funds, the department planned to install the four-way stoplight at the busy intersection of U.S. Hwy 62 and Coffee Hollow Road, with the cooperation of the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.

EC removes polling places, limits media access

BY JAMI MURPHY
Reporter

TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – The Cherokee Nation’s Election Commission on Oct. 14 voted to remove two voting precincts and limit the time news reporters can shoot inside precincts during elections to five minutes.

Commissioners said a precinct in Cookson was added during the Tribal Council’s redistricting process but never opened as a polling place. Commissioner Shawna Calico said a decision was needed on whether to keep Cookson’s polling place or remove it. She said after some research, voters were going to have to drive either north or south around Lake Tenkiller to vote in Cookson.

“So this (Keys) is still the central location, so I say we just leave it at Keys (and remove Cookson),” she said.

Hundreds of people gathered at Crazy Horse to celebrate Native Americans' Day.

The event featured the sharing of stories by Lakota elders, as well as corn husk doll making, beadwork, and students participating in a hoop dance.

Guest speaker and Director of the Indian University of North America Director Jason Murray, Ph.D, spoke a message calling for cultural understanding and tolerance.

"When I validate you and your story and your background, even if it's different from my own, I empower you, I inspired you. You by your actions, your words, your success, do the same to me and that's a beautiful thing".

The holiday was established in South Dakota in 1990, the first and only state to celebrate it and Murray believes the state has capitalized on an excellent opportunity to lead the country in honoring the traditions and heritage of native people".

South Dakota and this place and we as a people in doing that, we have an example we are sharing with the rest the United States that we as indigenous people have been here, are here now and will continue to be here and that's important”, Murray said.

Hoop dancer Starr Chief Eagle says sharing the stories and traditions of Native Americans serves to teaches people about a history pre-dating formation of this country.

"This country is founded off of the Native Americans that were here before that and that's why we like to share it on this day, as well as me promoting the rest of my culture and sharing that with the state of South Dakota."

A blast on the mountain at Crazy Horse served as a close to the afternoon's festivities.

Header of Chief Baker's News Paper

“At a time in their lives when their days and nights should have been filled with innocent adventure, love, and the lessons of the workaday world, they were fighting in the most primitive conditions possible across the bloodied landscape of France, Belgium, Italy, Austria, and the coral islands of the Pacific. They answered the call to save the world from the two most powerful and ruthless military machines ever assembled, instruments of conquest in the hands of fascist maniacs. They faced great odds and a late start, but they did not protest. They succeeded on every front. They won the war; they saved the world.”

--Tom Brokaw, The Greatest Generation
~~~~~~~*******~~******~~*************************~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Osiyo;

Honoring our warriors is the Cherokee way. We have always held in the highest regard those men and women who are willing to go into battle to protect and defend all of our freedoms. That is why I am so proud we recently held our inaugural Cherokee Warrior flight. We flew seven World War II veterans to Washington, D.C., so they could visit war memorials and other sites in our nation's capital.

The Cherokee Warrior Flight, funded solely by the Cherokee Nation, allowed these veterans to see the memorials dedicated to honor their service for the first time. With more than 4,000 military veterans who are Cherokee Nation citizens, we have always known the responsibility of protecting our country, just like our fellow tribes. Native Americans serve at a higher rate in the military than any other ethnic group, and we are proud to do so.

I am so honored we were able to provide this opportunity to these seven Cherokee veterans: Navy veteran Steve Downing Jr., 89, of Locust Grove; Navy veteran Dewey Alberty, 88, of Tahlequah; Navy veteran Charles Carey, 88, of Hulbert; Army veteran Guy Wilson, 97, of Hulbert; Army Air Corp veteran William Wood, 94, of Vinita; Army veteran Eugene Fox, 91, of Bartlesville; and Navy veteran Joseph Leathers, 92, of Big Cabin.

These men who served in World War II tell us this was the trip of a lifetime. With our allies, their service helped liberate millions. They are truly the greatest generation. WWII was a war the United States had to win, and these men should be honored for their role in history. We plan to make the Cherokee Warrior flight an annual event. This is away to say thank you to our Cherokee veterans and to let them know that we will never forget their service and sacrifices.

These men, and a half a million other brave servicemen who never made it home, paved the way for America’s victory in WWII, and we are forever grateful. We will always respect that war experience and what it means for us as a society. God bless all these brave men who served for us to live free.

         *Paw* Osiyo!


Wado to all those who attended the 62nd Annual Cherokee National Holiday held this past Labor Day weekend. The festival was a huge success, drawing more than 100,000 visitors.

Principal Chief Bill John Baker’s State of the Nation address drew hundreds onto the Cherokee National Courthouse lawn to hear the key message that 175 years after Cherokees walked the Trail of Tears, the Cherokee Nation is not just surviving in northeast Oklahoma, but thriving. The tribe reconstituted its government and rebuilt its schools, courts and commercial success like it had in the Southeast.

This past Tuesday, Cherokee Nation officials announced plans for a $170 million dining, entertainment and retail development in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, as well as the eventual relocation of Cherokee Casino Tahlequah. The development will adjoin Cherokee Springs Golf Course, which the tribe purchased in 2012.

Cherokee Nation Tribal Councilor David Walkingstick, 34, of Tahlequah, was appointed by Gov. Mary Fallin to serve on the Oklahoma Advisory Council on Indian Education. Walkingstick, who currently works full time as the federal programs director for Muskogee Public Schools, will make recommendations to the state board of education and the state superintendent of schools on issues affecting Native American students.

Lastly, registration for the next free, online Cherokee Language Class is now open. Visit www.cherokee.org and click on the Language Classes box. For more news and information on Cherokee Nation events, please click on the links below.

Wado.

News From the Reservation of the Cherokee Nation
Header of Chief Baker's News Paper





Osiyo;

One of my favorite movie lines of all time is, “If you build it, they will come.” As everyone knows, it’s from the classic movie “Field of Dreams.”

I am proud to report Cherokee Nation is developing its own ‘field of dreams’ in Tahlequah, as we recently announced plans for the largest single economic development investment in the history of our capital city.

Like the movie, right now the future Cherokee Springs Plaza is just a 150-acre field. But on the horizon is a $170 million, five-year project. It will be a destination attraction with fine dining, entertainment and shopping. These shops and eateries will be a mix of national and local options that are not currently found in Tahlequah.

This project allows us to enhance the tourism footprint of the Cherokee Nation and Tahlequah, grow our local economy and create hundreds of new jobs for Cherokee people. Those income dollars will bring in more sales tax and more disposable income for everyone. The prosperity of this project will ripple across northeast Oklahoma.

As a lifelong businessman, I can tell you investment opportunities like these are rare, indeed. We now have a chance to build something that will create a positive change for our tribe, our people and our community for years to come. To me, that is real hope for a better future.

Cherokee Springs Plaza, designed to be more than 1.3 million square feet of mixed use space, will adjoin the 18-hole Cherokee Springs Golf Course, which the tribe also owns. The eventual relocation of Cherokee Casino Tahlequah and the addition of a hotel and convention center will allow more events to be hosted right here in our backyard, rather than having to drive to other areas for banquets and receptions. It will be an ideal site for conferences and meetings. The amenities will be second to none and will attract people and tourism dollars. It cements our place as the entertainment leader in northeast Oklahoma.

Equally important as the retail development and economic boon are the educational opportunities we are creating for our Cherokee youth.

When we eventually relocate Cherokee Casino Tahlequah, we’ll finally be able to convert the existing casino into a bigger and better immersion school for our Cherokee children. That was the original plan years ago when the casino was built near Sequoyah Schools. And today, through strategic decision-making, we are finally able to execute that dream for our people.

The project is a three-phase process. First, we will build roads and establish utilities to the property. The second phase includes building a new Cherokee Casino Tahlequah with a resort hotel, convention center and a new golf course clubhouse. Lastly will be the installation of the retail strip in Tahlequah.

We have worked diligently with our partners in the community, including the mayor’s office, city council, Northeastern State University and Tahlequah Chamber of Commerce. Every single official has been supportive and appreciative. This project won’t be easy, but it will improve our future. Cherokee Springs Plaza will be good for our people and good for Tahlequah. It is another way we are creating more jobs and more hope for the Cherokee Nation.

We will build it, and they will come.

News From Cherokee Nation Reservation

Osiyo everyone, our latest news from Chief Baker from Oklahoma Reservation of the Cherokee.





Cherokees have been known for bravery and valor for generations, and more than two dozen Cherokees will put those qualities on display the next couple of weeks as they fight wildfires more than 1,000 miles away. On Wednesday, we saw our elite firefighting unit off, the Cherokee Nation Fire Dancers, as they once again risk their own safety to protect the lives and property of strangers on the other side of the United States. Six Cherokee Fire Dancers were deployed to fight wildfires in California earlier this month, and 19 more left Tahlequah Wednesday to join them.

We gathered that sunny afternoon knowing they were headed to an area with smoky skies and imminent danger from these destructive fires. We wished them well and let them know the thoughts and prayers of everyone in the Cherokee Nation are with them as they accept this dangerous mission. Wednesday afternoon, they loaded their gear onto a bus in Tahlequah, where they made the trip to Fort Smith, Arkansas. From there, they boarded a plane that carried them to California, where they will spend the next two to three weeks. Joining the Fire Dancers are some of our Cherokee Rangers. The Rangers are a BIA sponsored group that helps suppress approximately 250 fires a year inside the Cherokee Nation boundaries, as well as national fires when called upon.

The Cherokee Fire Dancers have been respected as an elite firefighting unit for more than 25 years, and are called in to extinguish the most dangerous of fires. Make no mistake—the training to become a Fire Dancer is tough and rigorous. One of the many physical requirements includes being able to hike three miles in 45 minutes while carrying 45 pounds of equipment. Fire Dancers famously helped contain the devastating Yellowstone fires in 1988. That disaster closed the park for the first time in its history, but with the help of Cherokee Fire Dancers, it was eventually contained and controlled. This year alone, the unit has been dispatched to numerous fires and disasters, logging thousands of miles across the United States. In July, they helped protect and reclaim 260,000 acres that burned in Washington state, and last summer also battled blazes in California. They are also routinely dispatched to respond to disasters such as Hurricane Sandy which devastated parts of New Jersey and New York.

I’m confident the same bravery these men and women showed in previous blazes and other disasters will also be evident to citizens, first responders and emergency workers in California. I have no doubt the people there will be eternally grateful to these Cherokees who put their lives on the line to protect those individuals’ homes and businesses.

With that, I wish all of these Cherokee Fire Dancers good luck, and want them to know that my prayers, as well as the prayers of all of you, will be with them. Please join me in saying a prayer for all of them, and their families, as they embark upon this dangerous and difficult mission. We hope to welcome them all home in a couple of weeks with open arms, big smiles and a major pat on the back acknowledging all that they do.

Wado,

Thank you for subscribing.
