Re: Cherokees Embrace Self-Righteous Racism

This was a real good well writen article except for the last paragraph...

they have a section for responding to the article, I did with the following:

This was a well written informative article up to the last paragraph... Which sounds like it could have been written by smith himself this is one of the blatant untruths pushed by Smith and his minion upon the most venerable sect of the nation, the elderly and the young families,the pushers of the vile act went into the communities and ask the people if there was no media around, "do you want these N****RS with no Cherokee blood that were force on us, taking all of your health and education benefits?"

Here is a picture of a card that was sent out by the smith administration that confirms this vile act by them!

Then if you are serious about learning the truth about how and why and when the Freedmen became and are Cherokee, I will give you some links to material that will tell you, the Cherokee freed their slave on their own after the war, in 1863, here is a picture of the law written by the National Council of the Cherokee: http://www.cornsilks.com/1863emplaw.gif
Yes it is true the Cherokee fought on the side of the Confederacy, but the 1866 treaty the Cherokee agreed to with the U.S was not an order as smith and company would have you believe forcing the Freed slaves on the Cherokee People, they had already accepted them with full rights of a Citizen of the Nation with NO blood requirement by the legislative act.

The 1866 Treaty simply reiterated that fact, See the 1866 Treaty here http://www.cornsilks.com/1866treaty.html see Articles 4, 5, 9 and 10 for issues of the freed slaves. Then in the same year of 1866 the 1839 Constitution of the Cherokee was amended making into Cherokee Law the Citizenship rights of the freed slaves se it here http://www.cornsilks.com/1839constitutionofthecherokeeo.html See article I Section 2, and Article III section 5.

BTW these Freed slaves did not become known as freedmen until the Dawes commission era.

Chief Smith is a Lawyer he knows all this but he does not care he wants the freedmen out so they can't vote in the Chief election in June 2007, sad but simple fact!
