The Northern Cherokee Nation is recognized by the State of Missouri as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit charitable organization.
We receive no State or Federal Funding.
We depend solely on the generous donations from you -- our citizens and friends.
We are also recognized by the
Missouri work force diversity program
for members wishing to become minority contractors.
Disclaimer: We are not, nor do we claim to be associated or affiliated in the present-day with Cherokee Nation (formerly Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma/CNO), Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (ECBI), or United Keetoowah Band (UKB).
We do share some common history but respect their rights as separate sovereign nations. Anyone with ancestors on the
Dawes Roll is encouraged and recommended to first
reach out to these Nations to seek enrollment and citizenship.
