The Descendants of Freedmen of the Five Civlized Tribes Association will hold their next meeting in Ardmore Oklahoma on Saturday October 19th, 2002 between 1 and 4 PM at the Eastside Renaisance Building at 307 East Main in Armore Oklahoma. The association provides education on the history, culture, and political rights of the Descendants of Freedmen (most of whose ancestors had been held as slaves of the Five nations - Cherokee, Creek, Chickasaw, Choctaw, and Seminole in Indian Territory, currently the state of Oklahoma). The Freedmen and their descendants received certain rights and privileges based on treatys between the US government and the 5 nations and adoptions into the nations after the Civil War. The public is invited. Special speakers at the meeting include Gary Raymond and Eleanor Wyatt. Come out and bring Friends and Relatives and alert your friends and relatives in the Oklahoma- Kansas-Texas area who may be able to attend. For more info contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
