Re: Cherokee Freedmen Win Their Case in Federal Co
In Response To: Re: Cherokee Freedmen Win Their Case in Federal Co ()
Erma, I had thought the victory for the 1866 Treaty would also include the Creek and Choctaw tribes, since Marilyn Vann was representing the Descendants of the five tribes, but not so.
It seems that all contributions that were made only went for one purpose and that was for the Cherokee descendants to obtain citizenship.
It would have been great if all the tribes had been represented by Marilyn's lawyer.
What are your thoughts?
