In Response To: Re: Nation to nation Conference ()
If the requirement were that only "traditional" tribal leaders could attend, the Cherokees would have no one to send. The Chief of the CNO is just a guy with some Indian blood ancestry and the leader of the UKB, though he is a Cherokee speaker, is non-traditional. The Freedmen are as much a part of the Cherokee quilt as any other Cherokee whether they are traditonal or not. Their voices must be heard.
