Re: Lineal Descent vs. Blood Quantum? Equity Case
In Response To: Lineal Descent vs. Blood Quantum? Equity Case 7071 ()
This is the post I am responding to in regards to blood quantums. When a White man would marry an Indian woman, wasn't the white man's blood contamination? Also, how could there be a blood quantum for a person that is not even an Indian (White man), but yet he is placed on the by blood roll. But, as always a mixed blood freedmen wasn't considered to have enough of a blood quantum (mixture of Indian/Black) or none at all to be placed on the by blood roll.
So, what is the difference? All I see is racial discrimination.
Having to prove blood quantum is a waste of time because everybody knows that we are a mixed blood people (descendants), citizens from the five nations. Where did the White man come from? He was not originally with the nations. He invaded the nations!!!!
The nations are greedy for money today like back in the day for land by the Dawes Commission. Tactics to me are the same TODAY as they were for land to keep mixed blood out of the nations as citizens (more money for the nations) making the descendants prove a blood quantum that may never be accomplished (and if so it should have been recorded at the time of the Dawes rolls). Another lie that we are suppose to fall for. Descendants are citizens from the nations. The question is about the the citizenship of the White man that married the Indian woman.
We (descendants) are NOT the problem, the White man is. He didn't have to prove anything and look where he is.!!!!! You notice that the leaders of the nations were later mixed bloods (slave owners, White/Indian) after marriages to Indian women.
Descendants don't have a blood quantum to prove, because our ancestors ARE ALREADY on the Dawes rolls IN THE FIVE NATIONS.
