Cherokee Freedmen Case Returns to Capitol Hill

It's been quiet here, but in catching this yesterday, I thought it should be posted, as this is welcome news.

This week, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit will be the latest venue to hear arguments in the Cherokee Freedmen citizenship dispute—the ongoing legal battle over whether descendants of liberated Cherokee-owned slaves should be entitled to tribal citizenship rights in the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma.

See the link below for more info. I know I'm eager to see how this turns out as it relates to the other Five Civilized Tribes.
