Dang! I just missed this meeting. I want to check into my heritage and I believe my dad has a Seminole or Cherokee background.

I have heard stories of Black Indians who moved here with those in the Trail of Tears, having ties to Sierra Leone in Africa.

I will email you!

Not that there can't be more threads. One of the problems with Delphi is that the threads are flat, not threaded.

We had a great meeting, we are accepting applications for membership for our association. Our mission is to increase knowledge of culture and history of the 5 nations (Cherokee, Creek, Seminole, Choctaw and Chickasaw) and explore avenues to fight discriminatory treatment of Freedmen descendants by the US government and the 5 nations. Please email me and I will send you membership application.
