You Say NGE Cherokee, I say no such thing
You say Desert, I say Trees and streams what is called Green Country.
You are not the first to come to these forums and say Cherokee something or another
You will not be the last,

No, I write these posts for other people to read for they may think there is such a thing as a Desert in Oklahoma or such a thing as a NGE Cherokee
You will always believe what you want to, my writings wont change that. But for those that dont know anything about our people perhaaps they will come away with a better understanding.
If not that is there business and what I write wont change things...

I find it fascinating however that these kinds threads follow a predictable pattern.
Being called Grumpy is a new one though
LoL
Its usually stronger language
My bad on the misspelling. I must have read that wrong.

I've been to OK... There's a bunch of flat and brown. It's pretty dry too. Only nice place I saw was up in the mountains near Stigler, and that was my Great-great-Uncle's small-ish ranch.

I saw that one nut going on about a head-band and a DNA test... Doesn't he know DNA tests are pretty much useless for anything other than establishing probability of paternity/maternity? I can see why you'd be leery of people making a claim of the same tribe. I don't know why all the nuts pick the same one. But I'm not one of those... I actually have the genealogy papers to back my claim, the requisite blood quantum, and ancestors on the rolls before the Baker rolls. My only problem is that my family left before the Baker Rolls were taken, so we're not on the ones currently used for determining citizenship. If the internal law changed to descent from Guion Miller rolls for example, I would be down there filling out the paperwork in mere days. I'm not enrolled as a citizen. But that doesn't mean that I have no connection whatsoever. Family is family no matter what the law is.
