Cherokee Nation is well-known as an essential partner for the local and municipal communities within our boundaries. Together we are helping to grow the whole region, ensuring that northeast Oklahoma remains a great place to live and to raise a family.These investments were an important part of our overall pandemic response, which included direct assistance to elders and struggling families, job protection and job training, health care, education, and more. We tried to strike a balance between meeting immediate emergency needs and helping Cherokees to rebuild and emerge from the crisis even stronger.
