Re: Tribal Rolls with African Citizens-Cherokee

In all due respect?

Angela, I have yet to come across membership rolls related to the
Eastern Band of the Cherokees, i. e., as regards those who were
identified of both african and indigenous descent...

And if there is an established way or means to find out such via directly contacting the tribe/nation I don't know what it is yet!

I. e., their website seems and sounds to be related to promoting tourism, etc., (and I haven't even gotten the pamplet I sent off for via the Internet related to that yet)!

(Sigh)...

More to the point:

Elsewhere (via a friendly black indian on another board) it was
suggested that I may well be descended from one of the Thompsons who sided with the legendary Tsali and fought with him against the forced removal of themselves from North Carolina...

Hence is the origin of the Eastern Band of the Cherokees...

(Smile)...

Anyhow...

Any further suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

And thanks in advance!

Take care...

Peace...
