PO Box 746 , Tahlequah, OK
The language of the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians is the Kituwa dialect. It is estimated that more than 60 percent of the membership of the tribe speak the Keetoowah Cherokee language. The Traditional Cherokee people, the Keetoowah Cherokees, use the language in their homes, in public and in their everyday lives. The tribe has also started efforts to promote the language and launched the Language, History, & Cultural Department in 2005 to assist in the effort.
