Our April 25, 2015 Meeting

Cherokee Citizens League of Southeast Texas members and their families enjoyed an inspiring meeting on a wonderfully warm but rainy Houston Saturday, April 25. 2015, at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church, 600 Pecore Street in Houston.

A special screening of the video: "Cherokee Word for Water" was a moving and entertaining treat for all.  We shared Absentee Ballot Request forms for the upcoming Cherokee Nation election, and reviewed the timelines to encourage voter participation.

As always, the potluck dishes were outstanding and memorable! Thanks to all who brought theirs and to our energetic clean-up crew.

The Cherokee Citizens League of Southeast Texas was established in June, 2006, in Houston, Texas, by Cherokee Citizens, registered with the Cherokee Nation, whose seat of government is in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. The original name was the Cherokee At Large Voters League.  The current name was established by the membership on February 2, 2013.
