Response to RE: GOALS
Dr. Bob, no disrespect intended, but Eleanor Wyatt has a club comprised of descendants of former slaves of the Five Civilized Tribes. The only cohesiveness the group has is their common heritage to slavery by Indians. There is no inherent sovereignty in your group and nothing that could be recognized as a nation by Congress or the Cherokee people. The only rights the freedmen have are as citizens/members of their respective nations. Otherwise your group is just a bunch of black folks playing Indian. The future of the freedmen depends upon unity with their nations, not claiming to be chiefs, clan mothers and whatever other hogwash Gypsy has concocted.
