Every year, high school and college students from the Cherokee Nation and Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians participate in the Remember the Removal Ride. The journey commemorates the forced removal of the Cherokee people during the winter of 1838-39 and spans 950 miles during a three-week period.

CNB has a diverse portfolio of companies, spanning across fields such as information technology, construction, environmental, aerospace and defense, manufacturing, and gaming and hospitality.

The Cherokee Nation and its businesses currently employ 9,000 people.


World Without

Whenever I’m in Tahlequah, I make a point to visit the Spider Art Gallery located inside the Cort Mall in downtown.

The gallery, which opened at the end of July 2013, showcases artwork from Cherokee artists within Cherokee Nation, Alabama, New Mexico and Texas. Unlike some stuffy art galleries, this place has a warm, friendly feel to it. The high ceilings and open layout welcome you inside, and whether you’re a fan of pottery, paintings, beadwork or basket weaving, you’re sure to find something you like.
