About Us

Who We Are.

Our Story

Rogers County Cherokee Association (RCCA) was established in 2003. After searching for consistent meeting space, the community pursued grants and raised money to purchase land and worked together to build a community center. RCCA continues to be served by the building they built together and maintain.

Several years ago, RCCA donated the land back to the Cherokee Nation to be put in trust for the continued sole use of the organization.  RCCA feels the additional land into trust builds a stronger, sovereign Cherokee Nation and serves our shared community in Rogers County.

Each meeting consists of a brief business meeting for the 501c3 non-profit, questions and answers with Rogers County’s Cherokee Nation Tribal Councilmembers as well as a cultural or government presentation. A volunteer host or hostess provides nourishment for meeting attendees to welcome all members, guests and visitors.

RCCA meets monthly except September and December on the second Sunday of the month at 2pm.  RCCA meets in their own building located in Tiawah, OK at 15488 East 523 Road, Claremore, OK 74019 which is East of Tiawah-Justus School’s North campus.
