On the upcoming agenda is a resolution calling for an amendment to Article III ยง1 stating that the Cherokee Constitution add a Cherokee BLOOD requirement to be eligible for Citizenship with the Cherokee Nation.
This resolution will be the effort to oust all persons of Cherokee Ancestry who have African blood. There will be an effort to retain the Cherokee citizens who have Shawnee blood, as well as Delaware blood. The efforts to purge any presence of African blood, is a direct result of the ruling in March from the Cherokee Nation Supreme Court that found that Cherokee Freedmen were indeed citizens of the nation.Part of the wording that will be examined will be the following words:

"Citizens of the Cherokee Nation shall be only those originally enrolled on, or descendants of those enrolled on, the Final Rolls of the Cherokee Nation, commonly referred to as the Dawes Rolls, for those listed as Cherokees by blood, Delaware Cherokees pursuant to Article II of the Delaware Agreement dated the 8th day of May, 1867, and the Shawnee Cherokees pursuant to Article III of the Shawnee Agreement dated the 9th day of June, 1869."

The adoption of these words will allow the official legislators Cherokee Nation to join the ranks of the many groups embracing Afro-phobic behavior. However, the emotion appears to run deeper than a phobia towards persons of African ancestry, and suggests an outright disdain and hatred for their African Cherokee citizens.

It is no surprise that hate groups such as the Aryan nation, or political states that had organized systems of racial separation, such as apartheid in South African, the former Rhodesia and other places thrived on hatred of another race. It is a surprise for many Americans to learn that one of the largest of the Federally recognized tribes in the United States---a tribe that has received much public sentiment for decades because of the losses in the forced removal on the Trail of Tears--- can blatantly embrace its own organized form of apartheid, and is making all attempts in the 21st century America to oust all Cherokee citizens who have African blood and whose ancestors were placed on a roll that referenced the slave ancestry of some of their ancestors. The Cherokee slave owner descendants of course are all still welcomed.

What took them so long? This should stop every black person from saying they are Indians. My great great granddad was Indian but that was way back then. I'm a blond blueeyed man and don't claim to be anything else but that.

The Cherokee Freedmen have been returned to the Cherokee Nation! So much has happened since I've been away !

I hope this has been a learning experience for all of us. Our laws must bring harmony and protection to all our nation!
