Osiyo Chuck,Good afternoon, poster...
But, yet another ironies of my life, i. e., to have come across somebody like myself, only to see you fading into the sunset, etc.
How come, and why now, since you've also gotta be aware of the ongoing conflicts, i. e., between those other black indians aka the Freedmen Descendants and some stuck on 'stupid' indigenous 'leaders' ad naseum,
one of a particular so called 'civilized' nation?
At least do consider emailing me directly about that particular subject!
Peace to meet you. Yes, I am aware of the recent controversy among the Five Civilized Tribes, in particularly the Cherokee, regarding the explusion of Black Freedmen from tribal enrollment. It is a travesty because of the denial and disenfrachisement of these people. I think it has to due to a variety factors - including historical bias harboured among these heavily white influenced groups. The stakes are high now as many groups are seeking to expel people with a valid and historical connection. I recall once, when living in Minnesota, a First Nation man who lived in the projects. This person was full-blood but because his grandfather never enrolled, he was excluded from membership. The funniest thing is his own cousin was presiding chief of the nation and living it up as a tribal casino executive. They knew each other and recognized their kinship but greed and the intervening BIA would not consider him a member. The poor First Nation man, a Dakota, looked more First Nation than his cousin who was chief.
I suggest that those Black Freedmen who are be "blacklisted" go on an national and possibly international campaign to educate and expose Mr. Smith and those Cherokees of duplicity. Funny how - white, blue-eyed and blond haired people are accepted but Black folks with significant ancestry are denied. It's been this way for years yet the fight isn't over. Those people know who they are and they should be allowed the opportunity to enjoy the full benefits of their identity what ever they may be.
I will say more before I leave.
