In Response To: Re: Free-Colored v. Slaves in Indian Territory ()
Eli and David, I NEVER said that the Dawes rolls should NOT be used BUT that it is unreliable meaning to me that it is inaccurate, it has a lot of flaws, people left off. Although blood is NOT the determining factor for citizenship, BLOOD is being used as a basis for citizenship towards black/indians and that is racism. The 1866 treaty does not mention blood degrees.
To eliminate the Dawes rolls will not happen because it is the only rolls available!!!
Well I guess Eli and you David can support each other because the Creek freedmen have been kicked out of the Creek nation and the Cherokee nation has Chad, a racist.
