"Siyo!" is how we say "hello."
Welcome to the official website for the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians in Oklahoma! We are a sovereign nation headquartered in Tahlequah, Oklahoma and one of only three federally recognized Cherokee tribes in the United States.
NOTICE: OUR COVID-19 OFFICE SCHEDULE
Per the UKB Tribal Council, UKB Tribal Offices will be extending the closure and limit on our services through October 1st. This is to ensure the
well-being of UKB employees and tribal members amid the COVID-19 pandemic by allowing more time to sanitize our offices.
This order is effective IMMEDIATELY and will be reassessed when needed. Several of our departments are closed or have a skeleton crew of essential personnel reporting on TUESDAYS, WEDNESDAYS AND THURSDAYS ONLY from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to complete any necessary tribal business.
There will be an inevitable delay on service processing times due to our current schedule. Please reach out as quickly as possible if you suspect you may need services.
For more on specific departments, please hover over the "Services" and "Departments" tabs to reveal their dropdown menu. Each department has a COVID-19 notice for their specific operating hours and contact info.
The UKB Tribal Council has authorized MCTLaw to create a portal allowing Keetoowahs to submit any instances of health discrimination when receiving healthcare at any Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma facilities, including W.W. Hastings. This is a voluntary portal. To document an incident or to get more information, visit the Council-approved portal above.
