The Cherokee Nation absolutely deserves a delegate in Congress  

In the last week, the Cherokee Nation decided to invoke Article 7 of the 1835 Treaty of New Echota, an agreement between the Cherokee and the United States government which stipulates “that they (the Cherokee Tribe) shall be entitled to a delegate in the House of Representatives of the United States whenever Congress shall make provision for the same.”
