NWA Media/Marc F. Henning Terrisa Muskrat, left, Cherokee Nation special assistant for government relations, greets Pamela Cagle of Bella Vista on Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013, during an outreach visit by Cherokee Nation representatives to the Center For Non-Profits in Rogers. The visit, one of several planned outreaches for Cherokee citizens in western Arkansas communities, gave Cherokee tribal citizens the chance to upgrade their ID cards and register to vote in upcoming tribal elections. Cagle, whose Cherokee heritage comes from her father's side, said she attended the event to upgrade her old tribal citizenship card to a new photo ID. The next Cherokee Nation outreach in Northwest Arkansas will be on March 2 at the University of Arkansas Law School in Fayetteville.

Dozens of Arkansas residents obtained new Cherokee Nation photo identification citizenship cards Saturday in Rogers.
