I do alot of reading and ran across something that is so common with these Heritage groups
The get mad with each other or a portion of them get mad and they split off and form there own Group

Now this James Jeffryes Dude in 2002 petitioned the BIA for Federal Recognition for the Tutelo-Saponi of BeaverCreek, Ohio

But in 2011 he is the Chief of the Saponi Nation of Ohio based in Xenia Ohio, They filed for recognition in 1998.
Both are still awaiting recognition

1830 INDIAN REMOVAL

The Indian Removal Act became law. This law made it legal to remove Native Americans from their land in the southeast. Indians were rounded up by soldiers and forced to march long distances to reservations. Many Indians died on these journeys.

Because of the Indian Removal Act, many Native Americans began to refer to themselves as "colored" or "mulatto" to avoid removal. Therefore, the former Saponi were forced to take English names. The descendents of the Ohio River Valley Sioux are now called Blackfoot Band of the Saponi Nation of Ohio, Inc.

Can we insert 'white' and 'Cherokee' here and go read about the Kentucky group and the white Ohio group and the Pennsylvania group, blah, blah, blah.

Blackfoot Band?

Point made. Case closed.
