Why Creek Clans?
Why do women in the Creek nation seem more important than the men when BOTH are considered citizens? I see a lot inconsistencies in the cases of minor, newborn, or illegitimate children within the nation.
It's okay to have a non citizen husband, IF the wife is Creek, the children will be enrolled. Turn this situation around and if a Creek citizen man and non citizen woman have an illegitimate child, then child is not enrolled (mother NOT Creek). Can someone explain the logic here?
If both parents are Creek whether they have minor, newborn or illegitimate children, their children are enrolled.
