Area Cherokee In Violation Of Indian Removal Act Of 1830

December 7, 2005 | Issue 41?49
http://www.theonion.com/content/node/43197

DAHLONEGA, GA?Authorities issued a warrant for the arrest and forced
relocation of local carpenter and half-blooded Cherokee Indian
Jonathan Silvers Monday, when he was found to be in violation of the
federal Indian Removal Act of 1830.

Half-blood Cherokee Jonathan Silvers outside his soon-to-be-vacated
home.

"Mr. Silvers is in violation of federal law," said Col. Jack Kippler,
who is leading the Bureau of Indian Affairs case against
Silvers. "For this reason, he was taken into custody, and he is
currently awaiting forcible resettlement on a Cherokee reservation in
Oklahoma by the U.S. Army."

Once in Oklahoma, Silvers and his wife and two children will be
permanently housed in a trailer home.

According to Silvers' lawyers, the Cherokee Indian did not realize he
was living in violation of the 175-year-old act signed into law by
Andrew Jackson, the seventh president of the U.S.

"When I told my wife that, under American federal law, we were going
to have to leave everything behind and start over in Oklahoma, she
was furious," Silvers said. "I blame myself: I totally blanked on the
Indian Removal Act of 1830 when looking for a place to live."

The BIA is currently fielding applications from families who would
like to live on Silvers' former land. According to Kippler, the
Silvers' two-story, 1,600-square-foot house, valued at $145,000,
would make an excellent home for a white family.

"It's a nice house," Kippler said. "They've taken very good care of
the place, really shown it a lot of love. It has one and a half baths
and a very nice finished basement with a TV den."

Army personnel say the Silvers will be given sufficient time to pack
their belongings into the trunk of a police cruiser before they are
escorted to their new and federally mandated homeland. Additionally,
the U.S. government has taken responsibility for euthanizing the
Silvers' dog, Spunky.

"I don't see the kids taking this too well," Silvers said. "Already,
they're worrying about making new friends in Oklahoma... But what are
you going to do? The law is the law."

"They'll be in tears the whole car ride there, I expect," he added.

Silvers told reporters that his forcible ejection under armed guard
could not have come at a worse time.

"We just ordered a new couch from Ikea," Silvers said. "Who's going
to get that? The new white family? Maybe I can cancel the order."

Mark Twoblood, an attorney with the National Native American Bar
Association, has reviewed Silvers' claim to the land and home he
purchased in 1997, and he says there is little he can do under the
existing law.

"I've submitted Silvers' case to the Supreme Court, but it is very
unlikely that they will add it to next term's docket," Twoblood
said. "I have done what I can. I would like to wish him and his
family good luck in their new home."

Twoblood reportedly gave the Silvers a decorative dreamcatcher as a
housewarming gift.

Note...

Given Uncle Sammy's schizoid behavior since the events of 9/11/01 went on and down?

Anything might happen to any of us here!

Y'dig?

I'dig! 

The removal act happens daily in the U.S. now.

Do you remember the people who owned their homes, and did not want to sell their property??? But the Supreme court desided in favor of the big money developers, and NOT the property owner.  It was in the papers about a year ago.

Good afternoon, Isis!

But I was just throwing a light jab at folks who guess and don't always make sure...

I don't--uh--sweat over what the other person is doing...

I do sweat over what I should've done yesterday!

Yah feeling me too?

I'm just trying to keep it real!

Later...

Peace...
