2010 Census...& "Race"
If you are a descendant of Freedmen of the five slave holding tribes and not a citizen of your ancestor’s tribe, what are you putting in the category of race on the Census Form and why?
With the understanding according to Chief Anoatubby “Approximately $3 trillion in federal funding will be allocated based on the results of the 2010 Census. These dollars will be allocated to tribal, local and state governments over the decade following this census. All tribes count on their citizens to follow up, complete the surveys and mail them back. We only have this opportunity once every decade!”
It would be interesting to know what the 2800 enrolled citizens of the Cherokee tribe check off on their census form?
