Our ability as a government to communicate with our citizens has just taken a great leap forward. The Cherokee Nation’s website – – relaunched July 1. The overhaul, the first in more than eight years, creates a better user experience on the website that operates as our digital front door to the world. A more sophisticated website has been our vision for some time now, along with the goal of making it easier for visitors to find the information that is important to them.

Cherokee Nation was recently bestowed a great honor by the U.S. Navy, which has decided to name its latest rescue ship after our tribal nation. The forthcoming USNS Cherokee Nation will be launched in summer of 2021 and will be a testament to the service and contributions the Cherokee people have made to the Navy and Marine Corps.
