After working with Cherokee Freedmen to publicize their case for over a decade, the Creek Freedmen (who stood vigil against disenrollment at Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, CA over a decade ago) are gaining traction in their fight against the RACISM that's holding them back from gaining their rights..
disclosure: Moved this post forward from December
We published the NBC post, and now the political online news site THE HILL has published an article on the Creek Freedmen's fight for their treaty rights.
Looks like Rep. Maxine Waters (don't look at me like that) is championing their cause. She carries a lot of what in Congress and with the Congressional Black Caucus, whose leader Karen Bass has studiously avoided the issue after replacing Diane Watson, who championed the Cherokee Freedmen.
