John Cornsilk Drops Out of Race for Cherokee Chief, Throws Support to Bill John Baker

Friend to Original Pechanga's Blog John Cornsilk has announced that he is dropping out of this year’s race for principal chief of the Cherokee Nation, citing his health, finances and a concern of a split vote in the effort to oust Hall of Shame member Chad "Our Slaves were well treated" Smith.

After talking with Bill John Baker, I feel he will uphold these needed principles and steer our people back onto a steady course,” Cornsilk said in his statement on his website. “He has listened to what I have to say, and we have opened up a dialog that will continue through the election and into his time as our next leader.”
