CATOOSA, Oklahoma -

The Cherokee Nation opened its newest tag office in Catoosa Thursday morning. 

Principal Chief Bill John Baker said demand is up for Cherokee Nation license plates, so it was necessary to open a Tulsa area office so they can deliver tags in a timely manner.

“Making the Cherokee Nation vehicle tags available to our tribal citizens statewide means we created more demand, and that is good for our tribal government, our partnerships with area schools and, most importantly, our people,” Principal Chief Bill John Baker said.

The tag office at 16200 East Skelly Drive opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. It joins five other tag office at Adair, Collinsville, Jay, Sallisaw and Tahlequah.

In the last fiscal year, the Cherokee Nation generated $11 million in motor vehicle tag revenue, up $2 million from the earlier year. Funds are used for public schools, road and bridge improvement projects, and law enforcement.
