Opinion | The Cherokee Phoenix newspaper and transparency in government


Cherokee leaders throughout history have known that informed citizens are the backbone of our thriving democracy. Well-executed journalism strengthens tribal sovereignty and self-determination by ensuring that our government remains accountable and transparent. That is as true today as it was when the Cherokee Phoenix first began publishing nearly 200 years ago.

That is why I, in collaboration with Deputy Principal Chief Bryan Warner, the Council of the Cherokee Nation and the editorial leadership of the Cherokee Phoenix, am proud to announce the expansion and continuation of the Cherokee Nation’s Free Phoenix for All Program.

Our initiative offers a free one-year subscription to any citizen who opts in through our online Gadugi Portal.
