My friend Marilyn Vann, who fought for JUSTICE for disenrolled descendants of Cherokee slaves (FREEDMEN) is honored by a nomination to serve her tribe.
Cherokee Nation Chief Chuck Hoskin Jr. announces on his Facebook page:
A special shout out to my friend Marilyn Vann who made history tonight as, I believe, the first Cherokee citizen of Freedmen descent to serve in a Cherokee Nation government post in our modern history, perhaps ever. An engineer by profession with an impressive professional resume of government service, she is highly qualified to join the Cherokee Nation Environmental Protection Commission. It was a great honor to nominate her and to watch her confirmation at tonight’s council meeting.
She is a perfect choice for the Cherokee Nation, a TRUE WARRIOR
