TAHLEQUAH, Okla. (AP) -- Cherokee Nation officials plan to visit Arkansas cities beginning this weekend to meet with tribal citizens and give them a chance to upgrade their tribal citizenship cards.
The tribe says more than 9,000 new photo IDs, known as "blue cards," have been issued in since October.
The citizens must bring proof of ID, their citizenship cards and their Certificate Degree of Indian Blood cards that are known as "white cards."
Tribal officials will be at McAuley Hall in Rogers on Saturday; at the Van Buren Library on Sunday; at the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith's Pendergraft Health Sciences Building on Feb. 16; and at the University of Arkansas Law School in Fayetteville on March 2.
Officials will be available from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. at each meeting.
