Krista, thank you for the work you do spreading light. Thank you, Tiya, for the hard and wonderful work you have done in presenting this past to the present and, therefore, the future. My Grandmother was full Cherokee-Choctaw and it is my blessing to have known her well. Recently, the Cherokee tribe voted against membership of the descendants of the Freedmen (largely slaves) which are listed as enrollees of the Cherokee Nation and given membership status. I am not a member of the Cherokee Nation so I try not to judge. However I hold a sadness and disappointment from their action. No, I am not black, but it is not an action my Grandmother would have liked either. (Her Mother died before the final enrollment).
