Welcome to the Home Page of the Oregon state office of the Western Cherokee Nation of Arkansas and Missouri!

UPDATE 9/8/99:
As you can probably tell, I am healing up nicely from my surgery. Still a little stiff and sore but that will work out in time. I even finally got caught up on my e-mail. Will miracles never cease.
Things here in Oregon are pretty much "on hold" right now. The two wonderful families I have been in touch with have been a complete joy to know, but I still haven't heard from my other brothers and sisters here. If you are a member of the Nation and live in or around the state of Oregon, please contact me. I would love to hear from all of you!
Until the next update, take care and good luck!
