Creek Freedmen Lawsuit

Hensci All,
A lawsuit has been filed against the Creek Nation in the District of Columbia for 1966 treaty violation against the Creek Freedmen. Our rights to citizenship were taken away inviolating of the treaty.

A number of Freedmen have signed on and are participation in this effort. The lawsuit can be amended to add your name to this historical document.

A vast number of Creek Freedmen are needed to accomplish of task(s). There are Freedmen located all over the U.S. and they need to know about the lawsuit to regain their citizenship.

You assistance and help is dearly needed. Your reposne to this e-mail will be deeply appreciated.

Mvto,
Allen

Re: Creek Freedmen Lawsuit

The correct treaty date is 1866 rather than 1966.

Re: Creek Freedmen Lawsuit

Allen Mitchell is to be congratulated. This action is a 100 years overdue in being corrected. The Muscogee Creek Nation was once all embracing of those who loved Creek language and culture. Strangers came to our Indian Territory bringing both discord and suspicion to divide us. The truth is, we are all connected. It is beautiful. It is funny and it is time to make our ancestors smile (in the cosmos) by standing together before the Great Oak in Tulsa. I hope the courts will move quickly on this.
Mvto!

Re: Creek Freedmen Lawsuit

My name is Vernice Arnold my Family name is Marshall. We are of creek and Cherokee desent though we're told that we are only freedman. Only because black familiesfamilies were not allowed to be on the roils and only on the Daws rolls. from Muskogee Oklahoma my family owned majority of6 what is now Eufaula lake and some of the surrounding area. My family refused to sell their land and was then flooded off of it. Some died and some lived on. But none was ever paid by the tribe nor government for the land. Though the tribe of Creek Nation was. So yes I would like to join this lawsuit against the tribe of Creek Nation.
