The United Cherokee Nation- Aniyvwiya Narrative

The United Cherokee Nation was formed in 2005 and at the time was known only as the 11th Tribe of the Cherokee Nation. Later, as other people came on board, our founder and number one Elder, David Joseph Jackson (also known to the tribe as Daei Grandor), changed the name to The United Cherokee Republic. David (probably ½ Cherokee) believed he had a “calling” to “help the Cherokee” but couldn’t even join an established, Federalized tribe since his ancestors were not listed on the infamous Dawes Role. So, believing in his calling and yet finding no common ground in which to work, he began the above-mentioned endeavor. David passed away on January 24, 2014.

The Written Law of the United Cherokee Nation – Aniyvwiya

The ancient Cherokee had no need for a written law since the statutes they observed were engraved on their hearts from an early age and everyone practiced them every day in all aspects of their lives. Because they were interwoven into the very fabric of the Cherokee existence, the various precepts by which those people lived could not be overlooked, they could not be ignored.

Determination Of Sovereignty Wampanoag Nation(s)


The following document was written years ago by the founder/legal leader of the tribe, Daei Grandor.  Since his passing some things have changed.  We are now known as the United Cherokee Nation-Aniyvwiya and our website is different, just to name a coupe of instances.  However, the spirit of the document, Daei’s fierce determination to see justice done for the Cherokee people, is just as true now as ever.  Please keep this in mind as you read what he wrote.

Tribal Law Sovereignty – Wamapanoag Nation

(a) all land within the limits of any Indian reservation under the jurisdiction of the United States Government, notwithstanding the issuance of any patent, and, including rights-of-way running through the reservation,

(b) all dependent Indian communities within the borders of the United States whether within the original or subsequently acquired territory thereof, and whether within or without the limits of a state, and

Cherokee Children’s Name Change

In 2020, the Tribe’s leadership was approached by two of our Tribal members who requested that we provide a suitable name change for their four grandchildren, for whom they had been granted guardianship.  The children are also Tribal members.

After taking the matter into consideration, the Tribe decided to comply with their wishes.  A judgment and order was issued to that effect on June 8, 2020 along with an appropriate legal argument as to why our Tribe had the authority to issue such an order.

In August of the same year, the Social Security Administration was given notice of the name changes.  They immediately amended the children’s status to include their newly changed names.
