Lunch & Learn Lecture Series returns Feb. 20
TAHLEQUAH – The Cherokee Nation’s Lunch & Learn Lecture Series is returning at noon on Feb. 20 in the Osiyo Training Room, as it kicks off the monthly lecture series with Principal Chief Chuck Hoskin Jr. discussing the tribe’s delegate to Congress.
For those unable to attend, the presentation will be live-streamed and archived on the CN’s YouTube channel at https://youtu.be/mX2YDQWasgI
On Aug. 22, CN officials took a historic step by announcing the tribe is enacting its treaty right to send a delegate to U.S. Congress. Hoskin nominated Kim Teehee, the tribe’s current vice president of government relations, to serve as the delegate. Teehee’s nomination was confirmed by the Tribal Council on Aug. 29.
During the one-hour presentation, Hoskin will discuss how the tribe is referenced in the 1785 Treaty of Hopewell and the 1835 Treaty of New Echota between the CN and the federal government. The 1866 treaty again reaffirms all previous treaties between the CN and the United States. Hoskin will also discuss the tribe’s next steps and how it is working with the Oklahoma delegation to the U.S. House of Representatives to move this appointment forward.
The presentation is free and open to the public. Complimentary lunch is provided or you can bring your own. The monthly Lunch & Learn lecture series is held at noon on the third Thursday of each month in the Osiyo Training Room, located at 17725 S. Muskogee Ave., behind the CN Gift Shop.
