Congressional Black Caucus to host Freedmen panel
Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Filed Under: Law | National | Politics

The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation is hosting a panel on the Cherokee Freedmen in Washington, D.C., on Friday.
Rep. Diane Watson (D-California) and Rep. John Conyers (D-Michigan) are convening the panel. Watson is sponsoring a bill that would cut federal funds to the Cherokee Nation until the Freedmen are restored to citizenship. The bill has been referred to Conyers, who chairs the House Judiciary Committee.
"This is a rare opportunity for advocates of the Freedmen and Freedmen descendants to gather and discuss issues of profound importance concerning the Freedmen’s rightful status as full citizens of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma," said Watson.
The panel takes place during the CBC's annual legislative conference at the Washington, D.C., Convention Center. It will be held from 11am to 1pm in Room 209-C.
The following are slated to speak:
Jon Velie, Attorney for Freedmen
Eli Grayson, Freedmen Advocate
Marilyn Vann, Descendants of the Freedmen of the 5 Civilized Tribes
Angela Walton Raji, Historian & Genealogist
Chief Joe Byrd, former Principal Chief, Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma
Hilary Shelton, NAACP, Washington Bureau
Rusty Brown, Attorney, Member of Delaware Tribe of Oklahoma

Intristing but not surprising: ALL on the roster are against the latest CNO decision regarding their sovereignty. Promises to be 'nicely' one-sided.

Didn't  reports about those meetings that actually took place in Western Cherokee country imply and suggest the same thing happened in reverse there too?

The parties are just talking at--not really talking too--each other...

So,  let's keep it real,  Mike!

And let's pray that cooler heads will settle this matter eventually...

Mister - I AM REAL.

You want "cooler heads?"

Then DON'T you tell me to "keep it real".

If the way I put it was and is a turn off for you?

Please do accept my apology because no insult was or is intended or meant...


I really don't believe you've done your homework this time!

And as I said/wrote before?

At least do check out what some of the Cherokee Freedmen Descendants have to say and write in their defense as well...

I have already told you my stance on it.

You assume I haven't read.

That I don't know.

Or don't care.

Wrong on all counts.

Now get off my grill.

This board is also supposed to be about exploring all aspects of Cherokee life and culture:

I await your further comments about that too...

Not even reading his convoluted passive-aggressive gambits any more until he learns to talk straight.
