The profits from Cherokee Nation Entertainment are all around us. They’re seen in the smiles of thousands of Cherokee citizens who work each day at Cherokee Nation-owned businesses. They’re evident in the education of our children as they learn the Cherokee language while embracing innovative technologies of the future. They’re apparent in the construction of community centers and housing where Cherokee families can come together.

When money is reinvested in the Cherokee Nation, jobs are created. Jobs stabilize communities and encourage growth. Flourishing communities allow our culture and language to be preserved and passed on to new generations. This is where the casino money goes.
