A Bit About Us
Our Story

We are a satellite community of the Cherokee Nation created to act as the official point of contact between the Cherokee Nation and its citizens in the San Diego County area. We were formed in 2007. The vast majority of our membership are citizens of the Cherokee Nation. It is our function to educate, inform and help maintain a connection between the Cherokees in our area, and those Cherokees in Oklahoma and across the country


Upcoming Events

On average, we have five to six meetings per year. This includes the annual “Chief’s Picnic”, a potluck at Lake Murray, and other meetings where special subjects or activities are planned. Check here to see what our next event will be and where

Our vision is to:

“Promote and nurture the historical values for Cherokee citizens living outside the Cherokee Nation boundaries”

“To be knowledgeable and assist the tribal nation in the issues facing modern Cherokee citizens”

“To work in concert with other pilot California citizen organizations for the benefit of the Cherokee Nation as a whole”
