Cherokee Nation Chief Bill John Baker provides an update from the recent Cherokee Nation Legislative Day:
Over the past year, the Cherokee Nation made substantial investments in its housing program for Cherokee families, increased minimum wage and extended maternity leave for our employees.

The Cherokee Nation’s car tag compact expanded statewide, and that means the tribe is making even more quality investments in education for our youth.

We have more Cherokee students who have earned higher education scholarships than at any time in our history.

We are employing more Cherokees than at any time in our history.

The Cherokee Nation and Cherokee Nation Businesses have a $1.3 billion economic impact in Oklahoma.
