So, just to make my point clear, I do not think that people should run out and demand that we start using basic knowledge of cherokee culture to base citizenship. I only meant that culture and more importantly family should be a part of it.
While I personally feel that any arguments of the broken treaty should never hold because it is already broken. Another point I was making is that fighting the treaty is not the only way to gain citizenship. Thats the legal way. The Freedmen can gain support not just by legalities but by morals as well. I think that education on citizenship should start now, the topic should begin now. And the Freedmen have an interest in it and can participate.
Thanks for the time to let me clear my point.
