Cherokee Patriot Day celebrates Ned Christie

Ned Christie to be celebrated during ‘Cherokee Patriot Day’

By Will Chavez“Cherokee Patriot Day” on Aug. 19 will celebrate the life of Ned Christie while raising money for the cemetery where he is buried.

“Nations celebrate their legendary patriots, honor their memory and the enduring love they had for their Nation. The Cherokee Nation has such a patriot in Ned Christie,” Hamilton said.

According to CN historical documents, Christie is considered a patriot not only because of his service to the CN as Cherokee senator but also because of his stand against the U.S. government.
