to Oklahoma. We do not have party lines, we voted for the person for Chief, Deputy Chief, and our District Representatives. I moved to the Cherokee Nation within the state of Oklahoma so I could be closer to my tribe. They give free on-line language classes, provide college funds, vocation training funds, free healthcare for all, they established a medical school and free full ride scholarships to the first class of graduates. The money comes from food and food processing, aerospace manufacturing, small business and now casinos.

The SCOTUS has no jurisdiction in tribal elections. In the opinion they said that Citizens United was not the law of their land, that they disagreed with dark money in any election, and refused to recognize it in tribal election. When testifying before this court, Walkingstick lied about his involvement with a PAC. Lying is culturally reprehensible to us.
