My brothers and sisters thank you for answering to my discussion topic. I must say that the only way to be noticed is to have our own rolls.
The tribal rolls on file are in MY opinion out
dated. Most of the descendants from this roll
may OR may not be registered with a tribe at this present time. Regardless of what any fullblood think of African-Natives WE have to stand up for what is OURS. We have the right to
be acknowledged by what ever tribe our families came from and not to be swept under the rug by anyone African Native American or White.
Brothers and sisters don't be afraid to raise a
few eyebrows. Never be afraid to fight for what is rightfully yours. This is the only way that the full blood will take us seriously. As my great-grandfather used to say "Always be a spirit never a ghost." As quoted also on the movie Bulworth.
