Shawnee & Cherokee relationship/status

Some questions..... What was and what is the status of those from the Shawnee Indian Tribes that were assimliated into the Cherokee Nation?

Did those Shawnee from the 1871 agreement become citizens of the Cherokee Nation? If so, are their (Shawnee) descendants considered citizens of the Cherokee Nation today?

These questions are just from a point of discussion.... I'm not looking for any acceptance/recognition or membership into the Cherokee Nation. I would just like to know the status of some ancestors that were on the 'rolls' found at the above URL.
