The Muscogee Creek Indian Freedmen Band will host its next meeting at Ralph Ellison Library on April 27, 2019, at 1:00 pm.  Topics of discussions will include the federal lawsuit filed by attorney Damario Solomon-Simmons of Riggs Abney law firm on behalf of the Muscogee Creek Indian Freedmen Band to restore citizenship to thousands of Creek Freedmen within the Muscogee Creek Nation.  

In addition, H.R. 1514 will be discussed, a bill introduced on March 5, 2019, in the U.S. House of Representatives on behalf of Creek Freedmen by U.S. Representative Danny Davis. The express purpose of the bill is “To sever United States Government relations with the Creek Nation of Oklahoma until such time as the Creek Nation of Oklahoma restores full Tribal citizenship to the Creek Freedmen disenfranchised in the October 6, 1979, Creek Nation vote and fulfills all its treaty obligations with the Government of the United States, and for other purposes.”
