The Cherokee Tribal Council ignored the marriage equality ordinance.

The Cherokee Council did not take same-sex marriage seriously, and it shows. The Council had a meeting last week to discuss the idea of legalizing marriage equality on the Qualla Boundary. One LGBTQ member of the Cherokee Nation, Tamara Thompson, wanted to see this happen but when Chairman Adam Wachacha reminded Council they had not deemed Thompson’s ordinance read and tabled, he was met with silence from all other members.
