License Plates of the Northern Cherokee Tribe

Pictures by Gus Oliver

Issuance and Recognition

The Northern Cherokee could not issue their own plates because they are not a federally recognized tribe.
The only legal way to have plates was to have the state issue them as organizational plates. An organizational plate requires at least 100 applications by a certain deadline.
The tribe could not come up with enough tribal members applying by the deadline so license plate collectors stepped in and ordered enough plates to put them over the minimum.
