Some more CHEROKEE NATION TRIVIA from the 1999 constitution convention that I have been engrossed in reading - it has some good history in it - When the 1999 Constitution was being revised an amendment was introduced that one must be 1/16 Cherokee blood and speak Cherokee in order to be Chief - here David Cornsilk makes a very good speech against it - MR. CORNSILK: Mr. Chairman, I rise in vehemenous opposition to that proposal. Again, with my experience in the Cherokee Nation, having worked in the registration department for over three years, I would submit to this body that the Cherokee Nation people are very diverse. We've heard that many, many times since we've been here. And that ninety percent or more of the Cherokee Nation is less than one-quarter Indian. That the most common degrees of Indian blood in our Tribe is 1/16th and 1/32nd. If we put this kind of limitation on ourselves, we are simply saying that we don't trust ourselves to lead our own Nation. We're trying to say that the people, our own ...

Why the Cherokee Nation Allied Themselves With the Confederate States of America in 1861 by Leonard M. Scruggs Many have no doubt heard of the valor of the Cherokee warriors under the command of Brigadier General Stand Watie in the West and of Thomas’ famous North Carolina Legion in the East during the War for Southern Independence from 1861 to 1865. But why did the Cherokees and their brethren, the Creeks, Seminoles, Choctaws, and Chickasaws determine to make common cause with the Confederate South against the Northern Union? To know their reasons is very instructive as to the issues underlying that tragic war. Most Americans have been propagandized rather than educated in the causes of the war, all this to justify the perpetrators and victors. Considering the Cherokee view uncovers much truth buried by decades of politically correct propaganda and allows a broader and truer perspective. On August 21, 1861, the Cherokee Nation by a General Convention at Tahlequah (in Oklahoma) declared its common cause ...

Any Native student of history knows that Andrew Jackson, founder of the Democrat party, was also known as “Indian Killer”. As the architect of the Indian Removal Act, Jackson was responsible for the death of thousands of Natives. Under his drunken rule the Cherokee Nation suffered the Trail of Tears, also bringing Davy Crockett (who was the only member of Congress to vote against the IRA) to say, “You can go to *** I’m going to Texas!” as he quit Congress in shame of their actions. The founder of the Republican Party, Abraham Lincoln, while known as a liberator for generations of African-Americans, was the instigator of the Long Walk to Hwéeldí for the Diné. Thousands of our ancestors were driven from their homes into concentration camps when crops, homes, and water ways were destroyed under the scorched-earth policy of the Army looking for gold to pay for America’s “civil war”. Lincoln also ordered the murder of dozens of Lakota, Nakota, and Dakota in the largest mass murder of Ameri . ...
Democrats in every state of the union have an annual fundraising dinner called the Jefferson/Jackson Day Dinner. The Jefferson is Thomas Jefferson, and if progressive college professors taught us anything it’s that Jefferson was a slave owner. But, in the pantheon of progressive sensitivities, he’s a saint compared to Andrew Jackson. Jackson, a lifelong military man and Democrat, was responsible for untold thousands of Native American deaths. Jackson oversaw the Trail of Tears, where lands were forcibly taken from tribes and they were marched west, many to their deaths. When the Supreme Court ruled the removal of the Cherokee Nation unlawful, Jackson simply ignored them, saying of Chief Justice John Marshall’s ruling, “John Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it!” The Supreme Court has no army, the president does. Jackson simply ignored the ruling and removed the Cherokee anyway. What’s more offensive: a sports team nickname people have to have explained to them why it’s offe ...
History of the United Keetoowah Band and Disputes with the Cherokee Nation INSTALLMENT ONE This is a concise history of the issues between the Cherokee Nation and the United Keetoowah Band (UKB) – issues that are currently threatening the Cherokee Nation’s historic jurisdiction in northeastern Oklahoma. This is a complex story so I will be covering it in several installments. Part of the confusion today results from the fact that there are actually two different entities that informally call themselves “Keetoowahs.” One is the Keetoowah Society, a ceremonial group that was revitalized in the allotment era and which still functions at several ceremonial grounds in northeastern Oklahoma, and the other is the United Keetoowah Band, an organization incorporated in 1946 under the Oklahoma Indian Welfare Act (a federal act) for the purposes of accessing programs offered by that legislation. Although each organization customarily refers to itself as “the Keetoowahs,” they are not the same organizatio ...
Cheyenne & Arapahoe Delegates for the Cherokee Outlet Oklahoma City ca. 1893 ... The Cherokee Outlet or "Strip" was a 67 mile wide x 225 mile long parcel of land ceded to the Cherokee Nation in 1836 as part of the Treaty of New Echota. Because of their alliance with the Confederacy during the Civil War, the Cherokee were required to renegotiate their treaties with the United States. As a result of a new treaty, ratified in July, 1866, the Cherokee temporarily lost control of the "strip" and Cheyenne and Arapahoe were settled on the eastern part of the strip. In 1889 Congress authorized a Commission to persuade the Cherokee to cede complete title. This photograph was taken during these negotiations, which formally ended in 1893, when a new treaty was ratified, in which for a sum of $8,595,736.12, the Cherokee ceded title to over 8 million acres. Photograph identified in negative as Scheyenne [sic] Arapahoe Delegates Counciling For Cherokee Outlet, Oklahoma City.
THE TRAIL OF TEARS 4 years ago by Lester Unega Waya The Cherokees in 1828 were not nomadic savages. In fact, they had assimilated many European-style customs, including the wearing of gowns by Cherokee women. They built roads, schools and churches, had a system of representational government, and were farmers and cattle ranchers. A Cherokee alphabet, the "Talking Leaves" was perfected by Sequoyah. "I would sooner be honestly damned than hypocritically immortalized" Davy Crockett His political career destroyed because he supported the Cherokee, he left Washington D. C. and headed west to Texas. In 1830 the Congress of the United States passed the "Indian Removal Act." Although many Americans were against the act, most notably Tennessee Congressman Davy Crockett, it passed anyway. President Jackson quickly signed the bill into law. The Cherokees attempted to fight removal legally by challenging the removal laws in the Supreme Court and by establishing an independent Cherokee Nation. At first the court seeme ...

A friend asked me tonight why people say my name in anger and with such venom; yet I never say their name. I have opinions on many things. I state those opinions freely. I don't expect anyone to agree with me. When I began the struggle for the rights of the freedmen, I was called Ni**er lover. Even when no one believed we could win, I stood firm. And now we are on the cusp of a changing event in Cherokee history. The freedmen will be Cherokee citizens. When I stood up for marriage equality in the Cherokee Nation, I was called a *** and worse. But now, 13 states have marriage equality and more soon to follow. Even Oklahoma will fall to power of the 14th Amendment. In a few short years, bigotry in the Cherokee Nation won't matter. I am a patient man. When I supported Bill John Baker for Principal Chief I was called a fool, told he could not win. When Chad Smith said I would never work for the Cherokee Nation as long as he was chief, I decided he would no longer be chief. I don't intend or set out to crea .. ...
CHIEF John Ross. Born October 3, 1790 Turkeytown, Alabama Died August 1, 1866 (aged 75) Washington, D.C. Occupation Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation Spouse(s) Quatie Brown Henley (born c. 1790–1839) Mary Brian Stapler (1826–1865) Relatives Great-granddaughter, Mary G. Ross John Ross (October 3, 1790–August 1, 1866), also known as Guwisguwi (meaning in Cherokee a "Little White Bird"), was the Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation from 1828–1866, serving longer in this position than any other person. Described as the Moses of his people, Ross influenced the former Indian nation through such tumultuous events as the relocation to Indian Territory and the American Civil War. John Ross was only one-eighth Cherokee, the son of a part-Cherokee mother and a Scottish father. His mother and maternal grandmother were of mixed Scots-Cherokee ancestry, since his maternal grandfather was another Scottish immigrant. As a result, young John grew up bilingual and bicultural, an experience that served him we ...

The Cherokee Nation is now issuing photo tribal citizenship cards. Cherokee citizens can visit the tribe’s registration department to get a valid photo ID, similar in appearance to a driver’s license. “I’ve presented my photo tribal citizenship card at several major airports, and even to the U.S. Secret Service, and experienced no problems whatsoever,” Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker said. “Producing a government-issued, photo ID helps to instill a greater sense of pride in our people and decrease the possibility of fraud or misuse of the traditional ‘blue card.’” More than a year of planning and design was required to transform the tribal citizenship cards, also known as “blue cards,” into photo IDs. The cards still feature a citizen’s Cherokee Nation registration number and official registrar signature, but have been upgraded to include the citizen’s photo and signature, Principal Chief’s signature and a distinctive Cherokee Nation seal hologram for validatio ...

Sequoyah and the Cherokee Syllabary "Your invention of the alphabet is worth more to your people than two bags full of gold in the hands of every Cherokee." -Sam Houston Family tradition tells us that Sequoyah (S-si-qua-ya) was born west of Chillhowee Mountain, which is approximately one and a half miles east of Tasgigi, Monroe County, Tennessee. This location is only about 8 miles from Echota, the capital of the old Cherokee Nation. As far as his birth year, the best estimation is from 1760 to 1765. Sequoyah stated that when an Iroquoian Peace Delegation visited at New Echota in 1770, he was living with his mother as a small boy and remembered the events. While in Washington in 1888, he told Samuel Knapp he was about 65. An annotation on the Treaty of 1828 states his English name was George Guess. As the traditional Cherokee society is matrilineal, and one's clan is obtained through the mother, this information is of most relevance when researching the man's history and background. Her name was Wu-te-he, ...

Earlier, during his family's migration to Texas they travelled through the Cherokee Nation, where his father had caught some unknown disease, and died. It was said of Tarlton, that during the course of this battle, his horse stood over his father's unmarked grave.

The 4-foot-tall-by-15-foot-wide acrylic mural is titled "The Curing of the Fever." Physicians Bryce Bliss, Jim Brixey, Coy Edwards, Herb Littleton, Danny Minor, Ed Pointer and Tom Ward attended the Tribal Council meeting in July and were honored by the council and Principal Chief Chad Smith. Also on hand to commemorate this donation was *** s daughter Polly Reed and granddaughter Deborah Reed. "We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to these doctors who made this donation. Cecil *** is one of the premiere Cherokee artists of all time. For the Cherokee Nation to have this mural means his legacy will endure for many more Cherokees for many generations to come," Smith said. The mural has been appraised by Native American art experts who agree that it would br ...
John Ross CHIEF BRAVEHEART 1790 - 1866 (D.M) Hollywood has made us familiar with the names of certain Native American chiefs: Sitting Bull, Cochise, Geronimo. All formidable horseback warriors, but the only tribal leader who ever made a real impact on US society was a 19th century Cherokee chief called John Ross. And, as his name suggests, there was hardly a drop of Native American blood in his veins, as Ross was one part Cherokee and seven parts Scots. As Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation, he was known as “the Indian Prince” in Washington. He haggled with every president from James Madison, in 1816, to Andrew Johnson, in 1866, to keep that nation intact under growing white power. “The great object with me,” he once wrote, “has been to have the Cherokee people harmonious and united in the full and free exercise and enjoyment of all their rights of person and property. Union is strength: dissension is weakness, misery, ruin.” Ross was one of an extraordinary number of Scots who lived and f ...
So I've been researching my families geneology and finding intresting facts. I also found out that for over a year I've been working with my cousin, Crystal Silver, whom I've never met. She confimed one of our great grandfather's was an Indian Chief from the Haliwa Saponi Tribe. I heard this growing up but now I know its a fact. To all my family check out roots web. com and type Rebecca Silver. I've researched alot deeper than what you'll see on the web of our family but this will give you an indication of where you come from. I've seen records of our family members application from the 1800's to the Cherokee Nation, Eastern Band for Cherokee citizenship. AMAZING STUFF!
What a gaggle of bullshyted people, standing in line to save a few bucks on Oklahoma tags stamped Cherokee Nation, at the link you can see ole dumazz Bill Davis babble!! Even though I had tried to splain it all to ole Bill Davis for years, my last try was back in 010 over on my ole John's place: I said: Most people that got the tags Bill, don't got a dam clue what they are, they think they are Indian Tags, they ARE NOT, They are simply Oklahoma Vanity Tags for Cherokee, with Cherokee Nation on them, all because of the lesson Oklahoma learned when the "1839 Cherokee Nation" now (UCN) issued Tags, and the weezle Smith took them to the Crooked *** Cherokee County Court that does NOT have jurisdiction and got them stopped... Okla realized the Cherokee of CNO got a taste of Tags, so they ordered the weezle Smith to do up a compact so CNO could appear as an Indian Tribe issuing tags, with Ok getting most of the profit, so thats how it works CNO folks aint got no Indian tag simply an Oklahoma tag with with Chero ...
Good evening friends of PTFD. As promised, I'd like to present my bio, so you know a little about me. I'm a female in her late thirties who grew up in Claremore and Grand Lake. After H.S. graduation, I joined the U.S. Navy and served as a Military Police Officer and worked in an F-18 Fighter maintenance squadron in Fallon, NV, home of TOPGUN. I met a Navy Combat Engineer (Seabee) and we married. We travelled to many places, but as he spent time in the sand box, I called Ventura, CA and Ft. Lauderdale, FL my homes. After we married, I worked for the Dept. of Defense as a Police Officer ultimately earning the position of Lieutenent. We transferred and I went to University and studied Homeland Security. A few years later, we divorced after 13 years of marriage and I moved back to OK. I work for the Cherokee Nation in Administration. I haven't remarried, never had children and am a happy woman living life. That's the short yet long account of my life, lol. My heart is with US Military and Cops for obv ...
Housing Authority of the Cherokee Nation (for program information and applications)
The United Keetoowah Band of Cherokees, a federally recognized tribal government organized approximately 50 years ago, consists of a Chief,(Present-John Ross) Assistant Chief,(Present-Jim Henson) and a Tribal Council of nine members elected by district.[they are the original nine districts within the Historic boundary lines of the Cherokee Nation] Headquarters are in Tahlequah. Its current membership is around 7500, all of whom are at least one-quarter (1/4) Cherokee. The 2sgby or United Keetoowah Band should not be confused with the Keetoowah Society, also known as Nighthawks, a major traditionalist religious society with which many people are familiar. Nor should the Band be confused with the current Cherokee Nation, another governmental organization established much later than the Band. Because the Keetoowah Society is a religious society which can be compared to any other major religion, and the two tribal governments do not prohibit membership in the other, it is possible for a Cherokee to belong ...
And another email from At Large TC Julia Coates 2/6 maybe Cara shouldn't have announced she was running fir Chief year earlier - Hello, everyone – Summary: On the last Thursday of each month, two standing committees of the Cherokee Nation, the Rules Committee and the Executive and Finance (E&F) Committee, meet. All Tribal Councilors are required to serve on these two committees, and these are where some of the weightiest – and the most contentious – issues are debated. This is where observers will frequently see the differences in principle and policy between the majority and the minority blocs on the council come to the forefront. Last week’s meeting was no exception. Interested? Read on… There are two sets of meetings each month. The first are held on the first Monday after the second Saturday, and includes the monthly Full Council meeting. I fly in to attend those in person as I am constitutionally required to do. On the second set of meetings (Rules and E&F), I “attend” by webcam. At the ...
Less than 3% of the Cherokee Nation sealed the fate for the Cherokee to go on the Trail of Tears.
To anyone upset over the Coca-Cola commercial, let me ask you this: Where was the singing in Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw, etc. I grew up in Calhoun, Ga. the former capital of the Cherokee Nation before the Trail of Tears in which many Native Americans were rounded up and forced to walk 1,000 miles to the Oklahoma territory, which had only been possible through the Louisiana Purchase, which means that the French used to occupy a good chunk of what is now America. It was an ad to sell you Coke. Nothing more, nothing less.

For those interested in the roots of today's conflicts, here's something from: And Still The Waters Run by Angie Debo PS I'm not saying the selfishness is the root of civilization, they did. The same people who pushed the Dawes Rolls off onto the Cherokee Nation. "In 1883 a small group of Eastern humanitarians began to meet annually at Lake Mohonk, ... they discussed the Indian problem with crusading motive. Senator Henry L. Dawes of Massachusetts, a distinguished Indian theorist, gave a glowing description of a visit of made to the Indian Territory. The most partisan Indian would hardly have painted such an idealized picture of his people’s happiness and prosperity and culture, but, illogically, the senator advocated a change in this perfect society because it held the wrong principles of property ownership." Speaking apparently of the Cherokees, he said: “The head chief told us that there was not a family in that whole nation that had not a home of its own. There was not a pauper in that nation, ...

Last year, hardworking staff of the Nation worked diligently to fulfill the hallmark of our administration: Homes ~ Health ~ Hope. In 2013, we achieved many dreams for the Cherokee Nation: • More than 100 Cherokee families celebrated Christmas in new homes built by our housing department, and every month more Cherokee families are moving into their brand-new homes. • We made a record $100 million investment to provide better health care for Cherokee citizens. This includes new and expanded clinics, which will make it easier to provide essential health services. • We increased educational opportunities for Cherokee citizens by investing more funds in academic scholarships than ever before. • At Cherokee Nation Businesses we saw record-breaking growth as we continue to expand our business portfolio. • We fully funded the compl ...
I brought this over for debate, I'm sure lots of us have read this,but, I think it deserves a harder look and some Q's could be asked as well as some A's be answered. Reading the comments on the CNO 75 Constitution below this post, I thought this was appropriate, what's your take? A History Lesson By David Cornsilk: We should know our history. But it must be the real history. When it is said "we did that" it infers that Cherokee Nation had anything to do with the development and recognition of the UKB. If that's what is meant, it's not true. It was the intent of Congress and the mixed blood Cherokees that the Cherokee Nation cease to exist when our lands were allotted and Oklahoma became a state. The full bloods were opposed and formed the Keetoowah Society Incorporated to continue some semblance of governance for themselves. When Congress did an about face in Indian policy and passed the Indian Reorganization Act in 1934 it did not apply to Oklahoma tribes. The primary reason was not white opposition. I ...

I very much enjoyed my recent trip to East Tennessee and my time with the Chief of the OverHill Cherokee Nation. I spent three days with him learning the philosophy and teachings of the OverHill Nation. It amazes me that all the teachings and beliefs are based on the belief in The Creator. So much of the history of the Cherokee is not being taught and the culture is endanger of being lost. The Chief took me to the capital of the old Cherokee Nation and several other sacred places all in East Tennessee near Tellico Plains. Most people have a misconception and assume Cherokee, NC was the epicenter of the nation but prior to the removal it was just hunting grounds. This is not to speak ill of my eastern ban brothers but to walk the footsteps of the ancestors holy places just has a different feel then Cherokee, NC. I am proud to have joined the OverHill Nation and now look for much growth now that we have a clan here in Pickens, SC.

As usual you know nothing about what you're talking about Chris Whitmire. = CNO is NOT the Cherokee Nation! By David Cornsilk While I have a great deal of respect for Roy Hamilton, I cannot support his letter and the contentions he makes in it. However, I do not think Roy intentionally distorts the truth about the CNO, he, like so many Cherokees, has been mislead. He and all of us, have been fed a gruel masquerading as historical fact about the CNO. The leadership of the CNO have depended upon the passage of time, the lack of information and the draw of the dominant culture upon our lives to give them free reign to control the affairs of the Cherokee people from an illegal perch. Now for some facts: 1. The United States Congress passed the Dawes Act in the 1890s to dissolve the governments of the Five Civilized Tribes. Some tribes resisted, particularly the Cherokee Nation. The Dawes Act stated specificially that its purpose was to divide up the tribal assets and terminate the existence of the governments ...

They rented out the bowling alley and smoked marijuana all night. It was a stormy night and the power kept going out. They were scared to death. I left with a $300 tip! 4. I love the ocean. I love the fact that's it's so big and I'm so tiny. 5. Shera and I have personally had lunch with members of the Kansas City Royals. 6.

The Great Cherokee Children's Massacre Ywahoo Falls Kentucky 1810 On Friday, August 10th 1810, the Great Cherokee Children Massacre took place at Ywahoo Falls in southeast Kentucky. The Cherokee village leaders of the Cumberland Plateau territory from Knoxville Tennessee to the Cumberland River in Kentucky was led by the northern provisional Thunderbolt District Chief Beloved Woman - War Woman "Cornblossom", the highly honored daughter of the famous Thunderbolt War Chief Doublehead. Several months before this date, War Woman Cornblossom was preparing the people in all the Cherokee villages of southeast Kentucky and northern Tennessee to bring all their children to the sacred Ywahoo Falls area of refuge and safety. Once all the Cherokee children were gathered they were to make a journey to Reverend Gideon Blackburns Presbertearian Indian School at Sequatchie Valley outside of Chattanooga Tennessee in order to save the children of the Cherokee Nation remaining in Kentucky and northern Tennessee on the Cumbe ...

Standing, last evening, outside the house on the Cherokee Nation complex where Dusten Brown's family had taken refuge, I witnessed an Indigenous nation stand down in defeat, handing over the little girl whose father was forced to fight for his own blood after fighting for the country who ultimately forced him to surrender his child to a couple who'd taken custody of her at birth, even before a questionable adoption had been finalized. Last evening, I saw that Indian sovereignty and ICWA cannot protect us, and, our tribal court systems are useless unless they are willing to take on these fights for us and our children...ALL THE WAY! CN Atty General Todd Hembree stated that it was best for them to "honorably' stand aside and watch a Cherokee father pack his little girl's bags and send her off to people who passed on the chance of being seen as "honorable" by agreeing to be loving friends with visitation to a little girl who, as it turned out, did have a fit and capable, loving father and extended family and ...
For my Southern friends from my own library: Ellis, Jerry (1991). Walking The Trail; One Man's Journey Along the Cherokee Trail of Tears. Lincoln NE: University of Nebraska Press, Ch1, pp 3,4. "In 1838 the Cherokee Nation thrived in Alabama, Tennessee,Georgia, and North Carolina. The eighteen thousand Indians had their own newspapers, The Cherokee Phoenix, published in both English and Cherokee. They raised corn, cotton, hogs and cattle. The lived in log houses and had long ago put away their scalping knives. They hoped to live in peace where their ancestors had lived for over five hundred years. But in 1838, President Martin Van Buren, pressured by Georgia, ordered seven thousand soldiers to round up the Indians at gunpoint. Their homes burned before their eyes, while soldiers dug into the family graves in search of gold or silver. The Indians were thrown into thirteen forts newly built to act as concentration camps. I was born and raised in Fort Payne (Willstown), Alabama, between Lookout and Sand ...
My name, George Ulysses Grayhouse, was designed to honor, both of my grandfathers! The middle name is to honor Ulysses S.
