The Cherokee also has an impressive ride, but its acceleration performance is mediocre and every model suffers from subpar fuel economy and limited cargo space.

While we've yet to test the new engine at the track, we've spent time with it during our first drive. We found the turbo four to be lackluster compared with the V-6 due to its dull responses to throttle inputs; the new four-cylinder Cherokee also has less towing capacity pounds maximum towing capacity versus the V-6 Cherokee's towing capacity of pounds. While the nine-speed automatic transmission has been revised for , it was hesitant to make deliberate downshifts.

It was a historic step for the Oklahoma-based Cherokee Nation and its nearly , citizens, coming about a week after Chuck Hoskin Jr. The Cherokee Nation says it's the largest tribal nation in the US and one of three federally recognized Cherokee tribes. The move raises questions about what that representation in Congress would look like and whether the US will honor an agreement it made almost two centuries ago.
The Cherokee Nation's right to appoint a delegate stems from the same treaty that the US government used to forcibly remove the tribe from its ancestral lands. As a result of the Treaty of New Echota , the Cherokee were ultimately made to leave their homes in the Southeast for present-day Oklahoma in exchange for money and other compensation. Nearly 4, citizens of the tribe died of disease, starvation and exhaustion on the journey now known as the Trail of Tears. A delegate in the House of Representatives was one of the ways the US government promised to compensate the Cherokee Nation.
Inside Elizabeth Warren's courtship of Native American leaders. Ezra Rosser, a law professor at American University, told CNN that the US government has long made it difficult for tribes to exercise rights afforded to them in treaties. But now, tribes are asserting themselves in a way that demands the attention of non-Native Americans. Hoskin echoed that sentiment, telling CNN that "the Cherokee Nation is today in a position of strength that I think is unprecedented in its history. Right now, the federal government and Native American tribes largely operate as two sovereign nations that interact with one another, Rosser said.
The two other Cherokee tribes recognized by the federal government are the United Keetoowah Band in Oklahoma, which has about 14, citizens, and the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in North Carolina, which has about 16, citizens. It's unclear if they would have the same right to appoint a delegate. The treaty doesn't specify whether or not the Cherokee Nation's delegate would be a voting member of the legislature.
But Hoskin said the position might look something like the non-voting members that represent Washington, D.
There are currently six non-voting members in the House. Washington D.
