I know my information I don't exactly know dates. Most of it is oral though. My granfather used to say that tribal cards were just a way for the white man to keep track of us. As a child I wasn't supposed to speak of being half Indian much. I guess that's one of the reasons I'm with the Nation of Islam now. Bro. Ron said something about being Choctaw White it was my father who was white and a non-Indian. It is my Mother's Parents who are Choctaw. Can you tell me why an enrollment card is so important and can I enroll with the information that I know? Also my great-great grandmother might have been black because my grandma said she did think she was a freed slave. But I can't be sure.
