Responsible Hospitality

Cherokee Nation Entertainment's plan for offering a safe, responsible place of employment and entertainment.

The Responsible Hospitality program was designed to enhance safety and minimize risk for Cherokee Nation Entertainment (CNE) team members and guests. The program ensures sanitization and hygiene practices at our facilities surpass already rigorous standards and meet or exceed regulatory requirements and recommendations of health officials.
