TAHLEQUAH, Okla. - The Cherokee Nation Tribal Council confirmed the reappointment of Steven Barrick to the Cherokee Nation Gaming Commission during Monday night’s monthly meeting.

Barrick, of Gore, is a former school administrator. He has served on the Cherokee Nation Gaming Commission since July 2014. His new term will expire in May 2021.

“Mr. Barrick has served the tribe well as a Cherokee Nation Gaming Commissioner, and I believe it only makes sense that he be reappointed to another three-year term,” said Tribal Councilor Bryan Warner.

The Tribal Council also approved the acceptance of land in Sequoyah County from the Oklahoma Department of Transportation. ODOT currently owns the entrance road to Sequoyah’s Cabin near Sallisaw. The transfer of this land to the tribe provides permanent access to the historic site and allows Cherokee Nation to maintain the road and land.

The next meeting of the Cherokee Nation Tribal Council will be Monday, June 11, at 6 p.m. at the W.W. Keeler Tribal Complex in Tahlequah.
