The first Cherokee Tri-Council meeting of the Cherokee Nation, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians will convene on July 13 in Cherokee, N.C., and a contest to determine the logo commemorating the historic meeting is being held for citizens of the three tribes.
