Re: United Cherokee Nation, The Answer!!
In Response To: Re: United Cherokee Nation, The Answer!! ()
I don't get the connection as a response the the post I made.
And I would Question the whole thing, as there is no Lumbe & Cherokee Nation in NC, there is a recently recognized tribe of Lumbee in Lumberton, North Carolina, and there is an Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in Cherokee NC, and recognized as such by the Federal Government with Quasi Autonomy that allows them to act as a government, but NOT a Nation.
We Cherokee Citizens here in Oklahoma are the Cherokee Nation, and we are also members of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma because of that simple fact, and some of us that meet the blood requirements of the Untited Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians in Oklahoma are members there also.
