TAHLEQUAH, Okla. - The Cherokee, Osage and Creek Nations are all investing millions of dollars in coronavirus relief money into meat processing plants.
Cherokee Nation leaders said the COVID-19 pandemic has presented food supply challenges for their elderly and vulnerable members.
Deputy Chief Bryan Warner said a solution they have been planning for years is to create their own food force, by building their own personal meat plant.
