Mr. Sunray is correct overall. However, there are two errors. I believe that Navajo is the largest tribe and Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma is the second largest tribe. The second correct is: Chad Smith is not the newly elected Chief of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma! There were two legal counts of the vote in the recent election for Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma. Chad's opponent, Bill John Baker, won both times. But Chad is not willing to step down, so he continued to apply pressure to the Supreme Court until they agreed to have another recount, which is not allowed under the tribal Constitution. Then the Supreme Court decided the election had to be thrown out, so there will be another election. As far as I know, the date of the new election has not been set.
