TAHLEQUAH – Principal Chief Chuck Hoskin Jr., along with Deputy Chief Bryan Warner and Chief of Staff Todd Enlow, gathered Oct 6 to sign three Career Services proclamations.

The first of the three proclamations signed stated that October is now Fire Prevention Month in the Cherokee Nation.

“Cherokee Nation will continue to provide wildfire prevention education and wildland firefighter training that strengthens our citizens knowledge and improves skills available during natural disasters,” Hoskin said. “In seven years, I have watched this program steadily improve and I appreciate the leadership, I appreciate Career Services, I appreciate all the people who make it possible. This program I think is a model for the country and its getting better every day.”

Hoskin also signed a proclamation stating that October would be declared as Manufacturing Month in the CN.

“Cherokee Nation is dedicated to creating quality jobs for tribal citizens throughout its jurisdiction,” he said. “Cherokee Nation Career Services continues to expand employment opportunities through job training, career fairs, business partnerships, workforce investment boards, area chambers of commerce, career tech centers and other economic development activities. Tribal government continues to work in partnership with Cherokee Nation Businesses, manufacturing and industry, TERO manufacturing businesses, on-the-job training businesses, local businesses and industry for the benefit of all citizens.”

The third proclamation signed stated that the month would also be declared as Disability Employment Awareness Month in the CN.

“Cherokee Nation established the first tribal vocational rehabilitation program within the state of Oklahoma and has maintained its existence within the Cherokee Nation since Oct. 1, 1999,” Hoskin said. “Cherokee Nation vocational rehabilitation and disability employment initiative programs provide culturally relevant vocational rehabilitation services to disabled American Indians residing within the Cherokee Nation’s 14-county reservation.”
