Creek Freedmen Call for BOYCOTT of Muscogee Creek Nation For Discrimination

A group of Creek Indian Freedmen have called for the boycott of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation amid endorsement of a U.S. House resolution that would sever government ties with the Oklahoma tribe.
The Muscogee Creek Indian Freedmen Band called for a boycott of the Creek Nation. General counsel for the band, Damario Solomon-Simmons, said they are working with their national partners to call for “all individuals of good faith, particularly African Americans,” to end business with the Creek Nation until the freedmen are able to enroll in the tribe.
“Our national partners have committed to helping us contact different organizations, different music groups that are coming through and actually performing at the Creek Nation casinos, to put them on notice that they should not spend their money with an institution that is openly, brazenly and boldly discriminating based upon race,” Solomon-Simmons said.
