TTA Construction of Gore was recently named the Construction Company of the Year by the Cherokee Nation.
The construction company was one of hundreds of Native-owned businesses honored by the tribe at the ninth annual TERO Awards Banquet in Tulsa.
The Cherokee Nation Tribal Employment Rights Office (TERO) has more than 80 Indian-owned companies that are TERO-certified vendors able to do business with the tribe and better compete for government contract jobs.
In 2016 TERO vendors earned more than $21 million in contracts just through the Cherokee Nation. At the banquet, the Cherokee Nation honored eight standout TERO businesses with awards, including TTA Construction.
