Re: Explanations of Cherokee Dawes Roll Sections

I think this "By Blood" quote should be abandond.Blood is not the issue,When it comes to the Five Tribes.It's about Slavery.Why is it by blood when benefits and citizenship is involved,but when slaves were on the auction block prior to the removal ,blood was not an issue.It's just another way to descriminate ,because they no that most Freedmen can't prove it anyway.A lot of Freedmen who had Indian fathers---Like my Grandmother, was put on the Freedmen roll and no blood was listed. Freedmen should be citizens by treaty.
So please stop talking this By Blood and talk about the Freedmen.It was the Freedmen ancesters who worked for free and helped build the Indian tribes---notice I'm not saying nation---Well I can't, because a nation should take care of all their citizens and the so call nations are not doing that.
