Other "Cherokees"

Cherokee is a group of affiliated companies that facilitates neighborhood revitalization, and help families, by investing in distressed real estate and related debt, and then rehabilitating these assets. Here is a list of our primary business units.

Cherokee is a very common name, and we are often confused with other companies, or with native American Indian groups. This page describes some commonly Questioned relationships.

Other Cherokee Real Estate Developers

Cherokee Investment Funds (New Jersey Offices) ("CIF") is sometimes confused with the Cherokee Group based in Red Bank, NJ. CIF started in 1984 as a group of investors buying some old brick plants. It has since morphed into one of Americas largest private equity firms specializing in the redevelopment of brownfields and other contaminated properties. CIF's New Jersey operations are sometimes confused with ours. However the only connection is the name, and our mutual focus on restoring unproductive contaminated properties on a for-profit basis, in a socially-responsible manner. CIF is headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Cherokee Native American Indians

There are three Cherokee tribes recognized by the U.S. government: the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, the United Keetoowah Band in Oklahoma, and the Eastern Band of Cherokee in North Carolina. Other Cherokee communities in Alabama, Georgia, and elsewhere are considered unofficial, by the US government.

The Official Web Site of the Cherokee Nation is based in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.

The Cherokee Indians are originally residents of the American southeast, particularly Georgia, North and South Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Most were forced to move to Oklahoma in the 1800's. You can learn more at Cherokee Kids.htm
