Resolution to reverse Cherokee media ban withdrawn

A resolution seeking to reverse a ban on non-Cherokee media outlets — enacted by the Cherokee Tribal Council Thursday, April 5 — was withdrawn from the agenda when Council convened for its May 3 meeting.

The resolution, submitted by the tribe’s newspaper The Cherokee One Feather, stated that “many ethical, hard-working journalists are being adversely affected by this motion with no due cause” and that the Tribal Council should “hereby rescind the previous motion barring all media outlets, with the exception of the Cherokee One Feather, from the Tribal Council House.”
