Re: Majority Rules - Creek Nation
In Response To: Re: Majority Rules - Creek Nation ()
Eli and David, protest or NO protest, I don't think it is fair that you both should find fault with the creek freedmen descendants when the Creek nation is AT fault by not honoring the 1866 Treaty. What are you trying to do overlook the REAL issue??? Put the BLAME where it really is!!! The freedmen did not vote themselves out of citizenship in the Creek nation so who has the responsibility to reinstate them (the Creek nation). Why would anybody have to vote anyway in order to keep their citizenship when it was based on a treaty.
This thread is about "Majority Rules", NOT a protest. At the convention only Creek citizens were allowed!!!
