Hi Jerrika, my thoughts regarding your post are as follows:
1. The Creek freedmen and Cherokee freedmen are very similar in
regards to the 1866 treaty. But, Cherokee freedmen
have no blood requirement.
2. Cherokee freedmen were already citizens but denied voting
3. Creek freedmen were already citizens also, but who really
knows if the voting process was done properly that voted the
freedmen out of the nation (1979), not honoring the 1866
treaty. Also, it would not surprise me if the voting
results (2007) will be basically the same as in 1979.
4. The treaty of 1866 is still intact, but broken like ALL
other treaties for land/money. When a treaty is broken
there are always lies, deceptions, involved.
5. The Creek nation just needs to honor the treaty and do
what is right towards Creek freedmen as stated in
6. The Creek nation is playing an unfair game of blood
quantum NOW, so when you mention blood quantum
there has to be some documentation showing a percentage
of blood. The problem is, the documentation you might
have most of the time will not be acceptable to obtain
a CDIB card for enrollment into the Creek nation
7. The Creek nation like the Cherokee nation want the
freedmen out of the nation so they can have an all
Indian nation (how ridiculous).
GOOD LUCK WITH THE GAME!!!!
