Osiyo Tribal Citizens, We need your help! As you are aware or should be, we have been working on updating our tribal enrollment records. We have asked each and every one of you to update your files so that when we submit our paperwork for Federal Recognition you will be included. Unfortunately, there are many that do not seem to realize the importance of this request and have not complied. This is the final time to update your information! If your update form is not received by April 30th 2018 your name will not be included. This means that the responsibility is yours and yours alone. Contact your family members that do not have access to a computer and help them to fill out the attached form. We don't care if you sent one in last week, send another! We are working very hard on the final chapter of part 83 of the Federal Recognition process. NOW ITS UP TO YOU TO DO YOUR PART! UPDATE - NAME CHANGE, ADDRESS CHANGE, E-MAIL CHANGE, PHONE NUMBER CHANGE, LAND LINE OR CELL PHONE. IF A FAMILY MEMBER HAS CROSSED OVER PLEASE LET US KNOW! Mail the forms to the following: Northerncherokeenation@gmail.com (You must save form to your computer with changes before you send via e-mail as attachment) or NORTHERN CHEROKEE NATION ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE PO Box 413 CUBA, MO 65453
We look forward to seeing everyone, Meetings are open to all.

Let's make our 2018 PowWow a success!
Osiyo Everyone, Chief and I want to thank each and every one who attended this year's powwow. We had an awesome turn out both Friday and Saturday even if it did rain on us. Many of our citizens traveled many miles to be with their tribal family and we were so happy to see them. There are so many people to thank for making this all come together.
First our Chief for bringing this tribe together, Wado. then to everyone who helped to get the grounds in excellent shape, Randy Runion for giving up his Friday's to come up from Springfield, Mo to mow. Bob McCartney for helping with the mowing and weed whacking and many little things that add up to mean so much. Daniel (Beanpole) for mowing the day before and almost melting in the heat.
Special wado to Buffalo Sister who was here every day to answer the phone and thousands of questions, sell adds and then deliver the powwow booklets. Tanya, you were a life saver, your expertise in graphic design and layout made this year’s pow wow booklet the best one ever! How do I say thank you to my awesome kitchen crew Chris Brooks and Cindy Little Bear Linchey. You two were a team fantastic. Can't wait to see what the two of you have dreamed up for next year. Our auction group for all their hard work once again Amy you and Christie did a bang-up job. Wado to Ricky Swearengin, Diamond Auction Co. for selling it all! To our Drum Young Bounty, you are the heart of the powwow, Wado. To all our vendors thank you for bringing your wonderful items to sell. I know I have missed some of you, but know that I thank you also from the bottom of my heart. Until next year, May Creator keep you all safe. Mrs. Chief
