Re: Black Seminoles Voted out of Nation!!
In Response To: Black Seminoles Voted out of Nation!! ()
The Seminole Nation of Oklahoma certified last weekend's election yesterday July 7.
Three proposals affecting the Freedmen were approved by voters. One requires members to be of 1/8 blood. The tribe has not had a blood quantum requirement before.
The second requires members to be of "Seminole Indian blood."
The third involves how the Judgment Fund is to be used.
