Seal of the Cherokee Nation

Constitution of the Cherokee Nation

In 2011, The Cherokee Nation expelled thousands of descendants of Black Slaves from the Cherokee Nation. Black slaves and their descendants had been given the rights of Cherokee Nation citizenship under an 1866 treaty with the federal government. The Cherokee Nation is a sovereign one and its Supreme Court ruled that a 2007 constitutional amendment requiring Cherokee blood be required for tribal affiliation could stand.
