6 Days Before the Election: Happy Father's Day

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there, and it’s a great time to remember the principles and traditions passed down from our Cherokee fathers, grandfathers and way on back, that have helped make us who we are today as individuals and as a great Cherokee Nation.

Less than a week before the election, both candidates took time out to be with/talk about family on their Facebook pages.

Baker wrote: “My father brought me up with a strong moral code, a belief in hard work, and a respect and love for all men and women. Today I honor and remember him, and thank ALL the fathers out there for what you do.”

Smith spent the day biking with his daughter  Anaweg on the Remember the Removal ride, a group of bicyclists tracing the Trail of Tears from Georgia to Cherokee Nation, and posted a picture with her on his Facebook page.
