The Cherokee Nation began construction on an expansion project at its headquarters in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.

The W.W. Keeler Tribal Complex will see a new second floor. The 31,550 square-foot addition will enable the tribe to accommodate more employees and visitors.

“We are investing in the future of our tribe by making some long overdue improvements to the Cherokee Nation’s tribal complex. It’s been more than 20 years since we made quality improvements to our tribal headquarters, and it’s greatly needed,” Chief Bill John Baker said in a press release. “We are expanding and adding more space to house our employees and make visits to our tribal complex easier for citizens seeking services. Over the years, our staff has grown as we keep expanding programs and services that benefit Cherokee people.”
