Celebrating the Women of the Cherokee Nation

As a matrilineal tribe, Cherokee Nation reveres and prioritizes women in our homes and cultures. Throughout history, women have played a critical role in moving the Cherokee Nation forward.

There are countless stories of women who have, through the sheer force of their will, pushed Cherokee Nation onto a better and more prosperous path. This Women’s History Month, let us honor them and the example they have shown us. They are trailblazers who have earned our recognition, most especially for the impact they have had on opening new pathways to opportunity for young indigenous girls across the United States.
