Please tell me what is happening with the Cherokee Nation. I have never read such division. It does boil down to a race issue. I would also like to know who has put out this long list of who is Cherokee and who is not Cherokee. When did someone give these individuals the right to make a decision on the background of an individual. Many of us fought and did not allow ourselves to be put on a reservation, we didn't follow weakly, we fought and hid in the hills, then because we didn't go to live under the government on a reservation and our name isn't listed in some book that the government has, we are to give up our claim and our native blood, I think not. All those people that made this decision need to have their names removed from the roll as Cherokees, this is not the true Cherokee way, think again sisters and brothers as to what you are doing. Divide and conquer is what has always been used to weaken a people.
