Throwback Tulsa: Cherokee Principal Chief Chuck Hoskin Jr. sworn in one year ago today

One year ago today, Chuck Hoskin Jr. took the oath of office as the new principal chief of the Cherokee Nation.

The tribe covers 14 counties of northeastern Oklahoma, including parts of Tulsa. It is the largest Native American tribe in the U.S. by population.

Bill John Baker, Cherokee principal chief since 2011, leaves office because of term limits.

Take a look at photos from the ceremony in Tahlequah here.
