Cherokee Nation issuing photo ID cards in Oakland

OAKLAND, Calif.

Starting in October the nation's largest tribe began issuing citizenship cards to its 315,000 members.

The mobile registration group is in Oakland at the Intertribal Friendship House on International Boulevard Saturday. They are issuing photo ID cards from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Organizers say the cards are similar to a driver's license.

California is home to nearly 20,000 Cherokee citizens.
