Yet More on the Freedmen Controversy
The Cherokee Supreme Court is set to rule on Principal Chief Chad Smith's proposed referendum to kick the Freedmen out of the tribe. Let's be completely clear here: this has NOTHING to do with "Cherokee blood." There are enrollees on the Dawes Rolls who have NO "Indian blood" whatsoever, let alone "Cherokee blood," and everyone knows it. There are Freedmen who HAVE "Cherokee blood," and can prove it, and everyone knows it. But their ancestors were not given a blood quantum due to the racism of the Dawes Commission. And everyone knows that.
