In Response To: Re: 1866 Treaty ()
Well said Angry Chick, I was going to respond likewise, but found your words more than adequate. Mike and those that search desperately for what is not in the treaty need to start looking for what WAS granted. The entire reason behind the Lucy Allen case was the erroneous interpretation of the 1976 Cherokee Constitution regarding what was NOT there instead of what WAS. When discussing nations/governments, the foundation of the people's rights is, IS citizenship. Everything else springs from there.
