Re: Press Release: DC Circuit Rules for Freedmen

I would like to congratulate Mr. Jon Velie and Mrs. Marilyn Vann for their tenacity and patience in the litigation of this case. This case was vital to the cause because it will set a precedent for the Freedmen in the other Tribes.

We have gotten a favorable ruling in the Cherokee Tribal court due to the great work of Mr. David Cornsilk and Mrs. Lucy Allen, and, now in the Federal Court with this ruling.

We would also like to see congressional actions against the Cherokee Nation because of our work here in the Choctaw and Chickasaw Nations because it too will send a message to other Tribes that you cannot discriminate against your citizens with federal tax monies.

I think we should attack from all angles in forcing these Tribes to get in compliance with the law.
