In Response To: An Act to Provide for Final Disposition...I.T.... ()
Well Folks the reason you find nothing in any act that corroborates their claim, is because there is no such thing! If they ever get in to any detail on any information it will be some twisted-up misconstrued babble of something in the era, for example when they talk about the act of 1906 they are talking about this one statement where it says: The tribal governments were extended indefinitely by Joint Resolution No. 7 of March 2, 1906, 34 Stat. 822, and by Section 28 of the Five Tribes Act of April 26, 1906, ch. 1876, 34 Stat. 148. and they do this as a stand-alone bit of information with out any of the subsequent Court actions that lay out the law as to the fact of what it all it means for a government without a judicial branch, and the only way to revive their judicial branch was, as the Creek did with a re-organiztion under the Oklahoma indian welfare Act (OIWA), the Cherokee Nation, nor the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma have not!
Then when they talk about the Act of 1902 which is the: Cherokee Agreement, Roll of Citizenship, July 1, 1902 See at this link the part that has to do with Citizenship http://www.accessgenealogy.com/native/laws/cherokee_agreement_roll_citizenship_1902.htm sections 25 through 31.
The whole thing in total was an act to legalize the tying up of loose ends of the work of the Dawes Commission, in the final act of forever closing the Cherokee Nation Rolls, they pick the words from one section and that is section 26, of the sections of the act that pertains to Cherokee Citizenship... Section 26 follows you read it and see what it says, it is quite simpe to understand, and with a little malice aforethought it can be easly misconstrued to the unknowing many who will not even look, just take it as gospel because CNO interprets it for them. Following that is their interpretation of Section 26 you can see in the the documents of inclosure and sent to Congresswoman Watson in a BS packet that included all their BS See the packet here at this link http://www.cornsilks.com/packetwatson.html
SEC. 26. The names of all persons living on the first day of September, nine teen hundred and two, entitled to be enrolled as provided in section twenty-five hereof, shall be placed upon the roll made by said Commission, and no child born thereafter to a citizen, and no white person who has intermarried with a Cherokee citizen since the sixteenth day of December, eighteen hundred and ninety-five, shall be entitled to enrollment or to participate in the distribution of the tribal property of the Cherokee Nation.
Following is CNO'S mistated version of section 26 in the packet that was sent to Congress woman. see the total packet linked above
To prepare for the liquidation of the Cherokee Nation assets and allotment of its tribal lands, the Act of 1902, among other things, provided that "entitlement to tribal enrollment no longer existed for any person born after September 1, 1902." According to Section 26 of the Act, "The names of all persons living on the first day of September, nineteen hundred and two, entitled to be enrolled as provided in section twenty-five hereof, shall be placed upon the roll made by said Commission, and no child born thereafter to a citizen . . . shall be entitled to enrollment or to participate in the distribution of the tribal property of the Cherokee Nation."1 This meant that, for all intents and purposes, as of that date, the rolls for those who had citizenship or property claims in the Nation were closed for all, including Indians, Freedmen descendants, and Intermarried Whites.
