Who We Are

In the early 19th
century, the
traditonal
boundaries of the
Cherokee began
to be pushed from
the eastern U.S.,
west across the
Mississippi River
to Arkansas and
Missouri.  
Through a series
of moves by the
federal
government, the
Cherokee would
be moved again to
Oklahoma.  
However, many
stayed on the
Arkansas River,
remaining on the
only lands the
Cherokee of
Arkansas and
Missouri ever
agreed to
exchange for.

Mission Statement

Our goal is to be federally recognized
as an Indian tribe in order for the
people of the Cherokee on the
Arkansas River to have many of the
benefits currently received by other
Native American groups.  Some of
our priorities include cheap and
affordable health care as well as
economic development, jobs, and
financial stability for all the members
of the Lost Cherokee.

CASE SETTLED JUNE 14, 2010
The judge did not dismiss Jerry Patterson as our attorney.  
(Susan Jarrett, with her company of bodies, Leon Stockton, Kay Steele Stockton, Linda
Fisher, Harold Helton, Jennifer Helton, and Gelders, in the last minute before court, filed a
28 or more page document before the court, by her attorney to postpone the hearing and
asking for dismissal of Jerry Patterson as the Lost Cherokee attorney on technicality and
requesting the duplicate files of the 731 names that Phillip Hubbard has been holding for
the Lost Cherokee, which the judge denied the request of until all matters are settled.  The
Judge postponed the hearing to read the motions and to make a decision on this matter,
attentive date of April was set.
This was a surprised move knowing that Susan Jarrett has never been part of the original
council, only a lesser for the Lost Cherokee when the office was in Dover, Arkansas.  Also
surprisingly was the companionship of Harold Helton, Jennifer Helton, Leon Stockton, Kay
Steele Stockton, and Linda Fisher trying to stop the union of the Lost Cherokee council.)
