Hummingbird,
Someone has fed you (and probably your father) some bad info.........if your family is Cherokee start tracing them back to where they came from.......who they came from.........document it.
Since it seems your family is from the south eastern area, you would probably need to find out from the Eastern Band of Cherokee what are the requirements are for tribal membership as well as what rolls your family may be on (do a search online for the Eastern Band of the Cherokee's and inquire of them what the tribal membership requirements are).
Not only is it finding your family on the rolls you need to do.........you need to prove it. Direct lineage....family death and birth certificates. Proving with out any doubt that the person listed on the rolls is someone you are directly related to.
It takes some work.........but if you want to claim yourself as Cherokee.....you need to make the effort to back it up.
Get your info from the Cherokee nation's tribal center.

Be wary of any group that will sell you a membership/enrollment card........they are fake and only wanting to take your money.
I'm thinking that's probably what has happened to you.

And your right...........God see's all things.
But just remember if he's watching us......he's also watching you. So be sure you are doing what is right and good.

Good luck.
