Re: Obama's Cherokee Heritage
In Response To: Re: Obama's Cherokee Heritage ()
In response to David Cornsilk's post; he defines the Cherokees as those recognized by the U.S. government(the very institution that attempted to inihilate the Native Americans). I personally give no credence to anything the U.S. Government says with regard to the matter.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist from Redstone Arsenal, Alabama (which I'm not) to know that there are many descendents of Native Americans who chose not to be involved with U.S. government "roll-taking".
It is exactly this type feuding that made it easier for the U.S government to remove the Cherokee from their native lands.
