Creek Freedmen Descendants
What is the status of the Creek freedmen descendants in the Creek nation? All I hear seems like is just classes on genealogy involving money. I would think by now that the Dawes roll would be the first place that a person would look for an ancestor and if they are NOT found why have a genealogy class involving the 5 nations.
Also, although the 1866 treaty to me is still in tact,(no blood requirement) there seems to be a division between the descendants because of the blood requirement. It's like one person is better than the other. And, I wonder if an ancestor if found on the by blood roll would help other relatives listed on the freedmen roll.
I just feel that the 1866 treaty has not changed, but that the nations just want to change history by excluding Blacks that made up their history and it CANNOT be done. So, apparently the nations want to take on the White man's ways by breaking treaties, excluding Blacks from their nations. The 1866 treaty was based on what???
