I enjoyed reading your article, but it brought to mind something else I have questioned. Why do the tribes say someone cannot be an Indian if they cannot prove their relationship to someone on the Dawes roll or Baker roll, etc....yet there are more white people living on the reservations than there are Indians? I know people that have family listed on the Miller rolls all the way back to the Old Settlers rolls, and they look more like an Indian than some Cheifs, but they cannot live on the reservation. I would really like to know why all these white people live there, but real Indians cannot?
