SAVE THE STATUS OF THE CHEROKEE NATION
7 years ago
| Hot!

Broken Promises

This country's treatment of its entire citizenry, and its progressive destruction of the Constitution and human rights, is despicable.  And, after over 300 years of degradation of America's indigenous people and breaking its treaties with them . . . it is STILL going on.

Please join me in signing this important petition and sending your letter to Congress.  Speak up.  Let them know
"Enough is ENOUGH!"

PETITION:

Created by:  ricky standing bear

Some members of Congress are attempting to terminate the existence of the Cherokee Nation as a federally recognized Indian Nation. For more information regarding this Termination bill as well as how to send a letter to Congress to protest H.R. 2824, please check out the following locations:

"None of us are free if one of us is oppressed"

You can make a big difference in just 5 minutes. That's all it will take to learn the issues and send a letter to Congress. The actions of the US government have an enormous impact on our nation, so please educate yourself and take action. Please take the following actions:

    Send a letter to Congress.

    Take a look at bills that could affect the entire entity that is the Cherokee Nation.

    Register to vote.

    Call to Action: Termination Bill H.R. 2824!
    Please write your elected officials!

    If you have already sent a letter%u2026this is a new version of a letter opposing the Termination of the Cherokee Nation and is now ready to go to your Senators.

    Why should Congress let the Courts decide??  In addition to Cherokee Nation District Court, these issues are being litigated in U.S. District and Appellate Courts in Washington, D.C.  Beyond the tribal court reinstatement, the Nation is committed to keeping the Freedmen descendants as citizens until all litigation has been resolved %u2013 and beyond if they prevail in court.  Congress should allow the Federal and Tribal Courts to do their work without interference.

You are right just C.

and for instance some people (hosts here) deny that we didn't need curing before hospitals came:

And in this way a conflict started with those hosts from care2

However we will over come

And not our opponents.
