Members that have paid for the year 2019 do not need to send more donation money to the Oakdale office or p o box 836, Oakdale, La. Keep your receipts and canceled checks. We know a lot of you have received letters saying you need to pay again, but you only pay a fee of $20 per year. Be patient and we assure you all will be revealed soon.

We want to thank the Governor Attorney General, and the Secretary of State for all the help that we have received.
    Members, we are working very hard to save our tribe and get it back to the Christian principles it was founded on. We are investigating and we have legal documents and legal papers that will inform our tribe of things they need to know. We will follow the bylaws and that includes the one about gambling. Anyone or group that attempts to bring any form of gambling to our tribe, such as cockfighting or bingo will be stopped. Our board is going to follow our bylaws and we will dismiss any tribe member that puts any personal pleasure before our members. Especially our children. True Native American Indians treasures all life forms, even our fowl. We use them for food and not for sport to pleasure some people. As Chief I Will strive with every fiber of my body to carry this tribe forward. We will have healthy entertainment and Culture classes to teach everyone. We will be glad and proud to be called Four Winds Cherokee once again. Please do not send your 2020 donations to the Oakdale address. Send them to our address at: Four Winds Tribe, po box 453, Rosepine, La. 70659.
Chief Barbara Doyle Sherman
    Four Winds Tribe Louisiana Cherokee apologizes to everyone for canceling our Powwow. The Powwow was scheduled for the 26th and 27th of October, but due to some problems that are being worked out, we had to cancel. We will definitely make up for it next year and look forward to seeing all of friends once again.
    I received a very encouraging letter from one of our Tribe Members. He is an author and will be sending us books to help with our fund raising. When we receive them I will do an extensive write up of him and his works.
    Again we advise everyone to mail all correspondence to our address at PO Box 453, Rosepine, Louisiana 70659. We appreciate all donations we have received to help with the legal expense of getting our tribe back. We are almost there and it will be a glorious day when we are once again a proud Tribe.
Thank you all for your encouragement as we go forward with our mission.
Chief Barbara Doyle Sherman
