Mr. COrnsilk allthough you mean well in you attributes to help the Freedman cause- which is greatly appreciated. The Dawes rolls as you stated are of importance for history's sake. You also claimed it was a racist notion forced upon the CHerokee yet your tribe still uses Blood Quantum (which is By choice!) I stated having an Grass Roots organization which is based on those same facts you stated-dawes roll names, descendants of legit enrollees from that roll. No so-called wanna be or fakes. My main point was to encourage others to do more and not sit by and watch others speak for us if we are able to actively do more and raise funds to help our cause. Never did I say we should hop onto any coattails of people named silver eagle who may or maynot have legit Indian ancestry. We as advocates have to be careful of the wording we ourselfs use. It has been brought to my attention that such terms do affend those who are in search of ancestry. I know you mean well and this is not a personal fight with you. I have issues with the facts on the table. I want to change the, "Business As Usual" (President Obama, 2009) I have documented ancestry on both sided of my family. It is apparent to me that I belong, and far from that I'm not selfish. I want us all to belong that is why I said all 5 tribes. David you have knowledge and education plus backing in the cno or associates. it will take a grass roots effort to change this election and votes. peoples who support the freedman who belong to the cno. It is those people who may or may not help us. But finding more Freedman with documented paper work or in process status will only help our cause and not hnder it. Thank you for your time. WE have to come together somewhere- everyone lets get more involved and not expect Marilyn Vann and others to shoulder the brunt of this fiasco. Thanks Angela for having his Forum it is the Greatest thing since the ice box! lol
