In Response To: Re: Obama's Cherokee Heritage ()
I reading your response I could feel your pain when you expressed your concern about not being accepted by the Cherokee Nation due to their laws. We have to accept their postion on Cherokee citizenship. Their position does not mean that you are NOT of Native ancestry. Not all Cherokee's feel the way that this particular band feels. I personally know of Eastern Band Cherokee's who think that this MUST BE ON THE DAWES ROLL citizens issue is completly racially motivated. Their were numerous Cherokee's who did not go to a reservation in the mid-west. They hid themselves in the Afro-American communities.
You maybe a member of an Eastern Band Cherokee group. Don't give up you quest.
