SUISUN CITY — Tribal leaders will host a community meeting Sunday that will offer Cherokee citizens who live in the area an opportunity to receive a photo identification card.
Cherokee Nation Principal Chief John Baker said it’s important to meet with at-large Cherokee citizens about tribal issues and offer benefits such as photo ID cards.
“Producing a government-issued photo ID helps to instill a greater sense of pride in our people, and we’re happy to bring this service to our Cherokees living outside of Oklahoma,” Baker said in a press release. “I’ve presented my photo tribal citizenship card at several major airports, and even to the U.S. Secret Service, and experienced no problems whatsoever.”
The meeting and luncheon is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Rush Ranch, 3521 Grizzly Island Road, in Suisun City.
