Re: Cherokee Nation Files Suit in Federal Court

So far, I have not been presented with any reason to accept these socalled "lost Indians" into my tribe except that it would benefit them. I see no benefit to the tribe whatsoever. There is nothing you can claim to do for us, that we cannot do for ourselves. In fact, to make such a claim is insulting. ???

Really and truly, there is nothing that thousands of descendants can do for our tribes? I will tell you what I do, and what I seek to teach others.

I teach my children love and empathy, respect and the beauty of the culture which belongs to us as First Americans. We reach out on a daily basis and teach people around us the indignities that have been and continue to be inflicted upon Native People. Not thousands, but HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of people are ignorant as to what the US Government has done to Native Peoples. We teach our children the language, the history, the joys and triumps along with sharing the sad burderns. We teach our children the lessons that they can glean from the lives of their ancestors. And David, that is only the beginning.

I am thankful that you recognize the fact that racism exists with the Five Civilized tribes, but you cannot help and degrade others in one paragragh. I am truly horrified by your pride and self righteousness...Nevertheless we are all entitled to our own opinions...
Think of the good that one person can do in their lifetime. Now multiply that by the tens of thousands. If one can make a difference in the world, truly tens of thousans can make a mighty difference.
