In Response To: Re: Creek Freedmen's Rights Under the 1866 Treaty ()
I responded to your original questions in your posts because you where seeking answers regarding the Creek Nation under the original treaty. I have worked on this project for many years and the information I provided was the current ideas and actions that some Creek Freedmen are pursuing. In addition, my interests goes beyond pursuing answers I am working to resolve this issue at this point.
I will further attempt to explain the five civilized tribes are sovereign as a nation and if the freedmen are included as citizens they will be a part of a Sovereign nation. No matter what happens the nations will remain Sovereign per the original treaty.
If the Freedmen become a sovereign nation it is still the same as if the are a member of the sovereign Creek or Cherokee nation. In addition, I am posting information regarding some of the questions you are asking to help clarify any misunderstanding. I hope you continue to pursue explanations to your questions and hopefully the information provided is helpful. I believe our goal is to be helpful and achieve the best possible resolution.
