    Greetings.

     

    The bases for denial of this request are as follows:

     

    1. The North Carolina Public Records Law does not apply in this case. Matters of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (a sovereign nation recognized by federal treaty) are governed by act of the Tribal Council, which propounds the Cherokee Code of Ordinances and other regulations. The Tribal Code can be found here: https://library.municode.com/tribes_and_tribal_nations/eastern_band_of_cherokee_indians/codes/code_of_ordinances.

     

    2. Chapter 132 of the Code deals with Tribal public records. This law requires, in section 132-5(b) that “The [public records] request must also state the date, name, address and telephone number of the requesting member, and must be signed by the requesting member.” In other words, this essentially limits requests to enrolled members of the Tribe.

     

    3. Please note that even if your request were properly identified with an enrolled member of the Tribe, there may be other grounds upon which it would be subject to denial. I do not explore those grounds here.

     

    Regards,
    John
    John F. Henning, Jr.

    Good afternoon Cherokee Central School,

     

    We’ve received a new public records request via our website for information that may be available in your office. This request was originally sent in via an online form to Howard Wahnetah on September 25th and we haven’t heard back.

     

    I work for a website called Sunshine Request www.sunshinerequest.com. We built a site that makes it easier to make public records requests by filling out a simple form, and the results of any requests are posted on our site. This allows citizens to learn more about our local government, while saving staff from having to fulfill duplicate requests. If you have any questions about the project, please let me know, and I’ll be happy to answer.

     

    Please confirm receipt to let us know the request will begin processing, and if possible, please provide a rough estimate of when the request may be completed. We will plan on following up again around that time.

     

    Here are the details of the request:
