TAHLEQUAH, Okla. — The Cherokee Heritage Center is hosting its annual SevenStar Gala on Oct. 28 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa.

This year’s honorees include America Meredith, Contemporary Achievement Award; Jack D. Baker, Stalwart Award; Cherokee Nation Color Guard, Warrior Award; and Osiyo-Voices of the Cherokee People, Tradition Bearer Award.
