The Cherokee Tribe of Northeast Alabama is a sovereign nation with representation on the Alabama Indian Affairs Commission. In 1984 the Davis Strong Act was passed which awarded our formal State Recognition from the State of Alabama. However, our existence dates back much earlier than this. The presence of the Cherokee Tribe of Northeast Alabama can be traced back to the lower Cherokee towns. Official documents dating back to the 1700’s along with various censuses from the 1800’s support and affirm the existence of the Cherokee Tribe of Northeast Alabama and their strong, sovereign, historical presence long before statehood in Alabama. Today CTNEAL is made up of approximately 3,000 enrolled citizens who are the proud descendants of the lower Cherokee Towns.
