|We have been told by a voice to remember our Tsalagi (Cherokee) ancestors, to pass on their ways, so they can't be forgotten. To help and serve one another for everyone's benefit. The less arguing, fighting, and grudges we hold the sooner our lives, our communities, and our world will be a better place to live.
Our history is different than those whose ancestors were removed. Remember the Treaty of New Echota and the selling of our Tribal lands. We seek unity now for all Tribes, Nations and Bands of Tsalagi (Cherokee), we united together are the Ani-Yun'wi'ya, the "Principal People", apart we are but lost. Remember we are the "Keepers of the Sacred Fire". Remembering this is a moral obligation to our future generations.
Our goals are specific; to gather all those who claim the right to be recognized as Tsalagi (Cherokee) , under one tribal membership organization. We will teach our children and grandchildren to appreciate the sacrifices of our ancestors, to respect their many hardships and to learn and teach our history, language and culture to the future generations before it is lost forever.
With your help, The United Cherokee Nation (UCN) will become the largest Tsalagi (Cherokee) tribal membership organization in the world. We invite you to be a part of our future as we continue with "THE GATHERING".
