Dear Elders:

Dear Elders,

 

As you know, the Keetoowah Cherokee Casino has been closed by the state until the Bureau of Indian Affairs is successful in getting our land in trust.  We believe this will happen in the coming months.  Right now, our budgets have been greatly reduced, and many of our programs are on hold at this time.  We have always been an elderly-led tribe and we wanted to continue the elder assistance checks even though we had to reduce the amount given to each elder.  Therefore the elders winter 2013 assistance program will continue but $100 is the amount provided for each elder.

 

 

Respectfully,

 

Joyce Hawk

Tribal Secretary

United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians in Oklahoma.
