Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker on Earth Day

Commemorating Earth Day is important for the Cherokee Nation and tribal governments across the country. Indian people are the Nation’s first conservationists and our tribal history is based on a balanced and harmonious relationship with our land, our resources and our environment. As such, we honor and celebrate Earth Day every day.  It is our responsibility to leave the world a better place for today, tomorrow and the next seven generations. We do that by being accountable and making decisions that benefit our people and preserve our natural world. At the Cherokee Nation, we embrace our role to lead by example in caring for the Earth.
