Good evening. Yes, there is a Descendants of Freedmen Association. The Descendants of Freedmen of the Five Civilized Tribes Association is a non-profit corporation, incorporated in the state of Oklahoma in 2002. We have members and official supporters throughout the United States. Our mission is to educate our members as well as the general public on the history, genealogy, culture, and political rights of black Indian people descended from tribal citizens of the Five Nations. WE hold meetings, publish a newsletter available for free to our members and official supporters, and participate in various forums such as school programs, etc. to educate the general public about freedmen history. We work to end discrimination experienced by such individuals from both the tribal governments and the US government. Currently, our organization is supporting litigation against the Department of the Interior regarding the rights of the Cherokee Freedmen. Our website is www.freedmen5tribes.com. We welcome you to become a member or an official supporter of our organization.
