Some members of Congress are attempting to terminate the existence of the Cherokee Nation as a federally recognized Indian Nation, eliminate all gaming operations for the Cherokee Nation and cut all federal funding. If the legislation threatening the Cherokee Nation makes its way through Congress, more than 6,500 employees of the Cherokee Nation and its businesses could lose their jobs. All programs that depend on federal funding would be in danger. The bill would close down all health clinics operated by the Cherokee Nation and stop funding for housing programs, including rental assistance. The legislation could stop education and cultural programs, end scholarship opportunities and close elderly nutrition centers. Many Cherokee citizens have taken a stand, and told their stories to members of Congress. They have shared why the Cherokee Nation is important to them, how they depend on Cherokee Nation to treat cancer, to help educate their kids or assist them in building homes for their own families. Please take the opportunity to tell your story and check out these other sources as well:
