Filed Under: Politics

Michell Hicks was sworn in to a second term as chief of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians on Monday.
Hicks called for unity after he won re-election by just 13 votes. Challenges the results were rejected by the tribal Supreme Court.
“We, together, have a responsibility to protect our sovereignty,” Hicks said, The Asheville Citizen-Times reported. “The only way to protect it is to protect it together.”
Vice Chief Larry Blythe, the tribal council and the Cherokee school board were also inaugurated on Monday.
