The at-large Cherokees consist of Cherokee Community Organizations located across the continental United States. Each organization will be considered automatically chartered under the new at-large initiative, enacted in November 2019, consisting of 4 at-large community members and the Director of Cherokee Nation Community & Culture Outreach (CCO) as Chair.
CCO provides administrative, organizational, and cultural support for all participating Cherokee organizations, in-reservation and at-large. The CCO-COTTA program’s mission is to assist community organizations ability to increase their effectiveness; enhance essential services to those most in need, and build upon the organizational capacity of each community, diversify resources, and create collaborations to serve those in Cherokee communities.
