Cherokee tribal government is all about inclusion of voices

Author:

Earlier this month, our tribe held an election for Tribal Council. Every two years, our six voting districts elect tribal council representatives. Our Tribal Council is the legislative body for our tribe and as such is responsible for making the laws which govern our lands. Our laws are based on many different sources. Some are federal laws which govern all federally recognized tribal government lands and the members of federally recognized tribes who reside on those lands.
