Cherokee Elder To Get a New Home

I know my readers will be delighted to hear that the Cherokee elder featured in "Our Moral Test" will be getting a new mobile home, courtesy of the Cherokee Nation.

Many thanks to all of you who have advocated for his needs by emailing your council members, sharing his story on social media, and praying for him. Your care and concern for a fellow Cherokee shows the compassion that exists among the Cherokee people.

Thanks also go out to those in leadership positions who worked behind the scenes to make this happen. Your willingness to listen to the people in this matter is greatly appreciated.


Those are my thoughts for today.
Thanks for reading.

Cherokee Nation Citizen Demands Investigation of Chief Baker's Participation in Pigeon Shoot

Cherokee Nation citizen, Michael E. Moore, has submitted a letter to Cherokee Nation Attorney General, Todd Hembree, demanding an investigation into Principal Chief Baker's recent participation in a Pigeon Shoot fundraiser for US Senator from Oklahoma. James Inhofe.

Moore states Baker's participation occurred during Cherokee Nation work hours, while Baker was wearing a Cherokee Nation shirt and driving a Cherokee Nation vehicle. Moore also states that he believes Baker has violated Cherokee Nation code, Title 21, Section 1685, our "injury to animals" law.

Moore asked that Hembree recuse himself and appoint an impartial prosecutor or grand jury to hear the evidence and determine if charges should be filed against Chief Baker.

Moore is licensed to practice law in the Cherokee Nation and is well versed in Cherokee Nation law.

You can read his full letter submitted to Cherokee Nation AG, Todd Hembree, below.
