Re: Cherokee Chief Moves to Remove Cherokee citize

I (among others) need and want to know where to find information on
that particular piece of damning legislation...

She Who Remembers--writes

The June 4th act was passed so that the government could handle the enrollment question De novo--(starting all over). Now,---- decisions that had been made earlier,(the earlier council decisions and earlier rolls) did not have to be taken into consideration for enrollment purposes. The Council at that time decided who they recognized and who they did not want to recognize. In other words--becasue your name was on an earlier roll, did not mean that you would be on "the new roll" (The Baker Roll). Then, they set up a committee for examining inheritance claims, and if you or your parent had been a slave,(even if you were not claiming through that source)you were considered uneligible. (And yes they made judgments based on your physical appearance as well---so no waves in the hair!) This whole matter was conducted all in due process; and by this system, ----they got rid of Black Cherokees.

But wait a minute,----this takes the cake---

If you had not been on the earlier rolls and tried to get on at this time----then they would tell you... "Oh,none of your ancestors have been on the earlier rolls". This happened with many of the Melungeon mixed bloods ---White-Indian-Black -Portugese people who had not been slaves and had Indian ancestry. Since they could not use the excuse of them having been a slave,--- they used,--not being on earlier rolls as the excuse.

--go figure---.
