Muscogee Creek Indian Freedmen, Rep. Danny Davis Re-introduce H.R. 4637 to SEVER RELATIONS With Creek Nation

 Excellent news from our friend Rhonda Grayson of the Muscogee Creek Indian Freedmen.



The Muscogee Creek Indian Freedmen Band Inc. is Thrilled to announce that H.R. 4637 was introduced by Congressman Danny Davis on July 22, 2021.  We have worked tirelessly with Congressman Danny Davis staff to ensure that HR 1514, introduced in the 116th Congress, was reintroduced in the 117th congress, now H.R.4637. 


The intro to that bill reads:
H.R.1514 - 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.

The express purpose of H.R. 4637 introduced on behalf of Creek Freedmen 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.

WHAT can YOU DO?  ASK your representative to SUPPORT this action.

Citizenship was granted by the Treaty
Of 1866,however, due to nature of the orgin of birth all were disenfranchised of their God given rights of citizenship. A a child I remember ny mother being provided with an Indian check. Blood was not a provision of citizenship however The Creek Nation violated the Treaty but are still being paid by tge Treaty.
