Cherokee Nation Leadership

Wado to our Peeps

Joe Deere

This is a note of heartfelt gratitude to the Cherokee people for providing us with an all-expense-paid trip to the NFR (National Finals Rodeo) in Los Vegas. I just want you to know that your tribal dollars are not wasted. I realize we could be using funds to support our elders and providing heat and food to our citizens in need. But Vegas is just so much fun!

You have been so generous over the last three months. All our friends and family have high paying jobs, new cars and some even have houses!

I’m afraid there is no money left for all our health care needs. However, it was a great opportunity to hang with Tina Glory Jordan, Rex Jordan and
Mike Shambaugh. Who knew that being a tribal council member had perks like trips to Vegas and access to tribally owned farm equipment.
You know what they say, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” ? 

Lots of love and kisses!

Joe Deere
