The Descendants of Freedmen Association and their supporters will host their next meeting on Saturday September 18 2010 at the First Missionary Baptist Church, 429 Denison Street, Muskogee Oklahoma. The meeting is free and open to the general public.
An update will be given on recent fiings in the Federal courts to enforce 1866 treaty rights of the black freedmen of the 5 Civilized Tribes (Cherokee, Creek, Seminole, Choctaw, and Chickasaw) .
The black freedmen currently face discrimination in tribal enrollments, accessing tribal services funded by the US taxpayers for members of Indian tribes.
