I think it is great that some of the respondents to this article know the historical accuracies regarding their tribe, however this is not the main focus at hand. The focus is that there has been internal strife within the one tribe for generations and this seems to have been started by outside forces systemiatically seeking to cause distopia. Perhaps both Muscogee and Poarch members should take a step back and look at this issue after balance has been restored between the two (prayer, ceremony) in an effort to determine the root of the issue and how it may effect all tribes in the end. If one tribe is willing to desecrate the remains of their anscestors, how will this set precedent for others--especially in regards to sacred sites. Just as Allen expresses below, this should not be a condemnation that all Poarch members are bad and that all Muscogee members are good but rather, this should be an opportunity to reunite families, strengthen community and culture and resolve this conflict. If elected officials are unwilling to do so--on either side of the coin--be conscious of those choices when re-election is coming up.
