WHEREAS, over 15,000 American Indians are today residents of Tennessee; thousands

of other Tennesseans proudly claim some Indian ancestry, but lack the precise genealogical

evidence to document it; and

WHEREAS, dramatic evidence of a resurgent American Indian presence in this State is

the formation of the Cherokee Wolf Clan, based in Yuma in southeastern Carroll County; the

Wolf Clan, comprised of Cherokees, Shawnees, Apaches, Blackfoot, and various other tribes, is

governed by a formal constitution, with a Principal Chief, a Cabinet, a Tribal Council, and a

Tribal Court; and

WHEREAS, the Wolf Clan publishes three newsletters to keep its membership in touch,

including the Wolf Clan Howls for adult members, the Wolf Cub News for junior members, and

The Chief Speaks, pertaining to tribal law and spirituality, as well as cultural history; the Wolf

Clan hopes to unite all Native Americans in Tennessee and has long range plans for a Native

American Museum, a library, a school, a tribal office, a playground, and a location for its

Powwow; and

WHEREAS, the Cherokee Wolf Clan is ably lead by Principal Chief, Joseph Manycoats

and Council Members Alma "Little Crow" Messina, Peggy "Blue Moon" Walters, Georgie

"Summer Rain" Poland, Betty "Morning Sky" Dreaden, Ann "Snow Dove" Shields, Ralph

"Coyote Brother" Lane, Clark "Running Wolf" Rochelle, Ruvina "Raven" Garrison, Michael "Rain

in the Face" Border, Janie "Spirit Wolf" Walters, Terri "Purple Sky" Ward, Sarah "Night Shade"

Walters and Kippy "Many Eagles" Vaughn; and

WHEREAS, a wholehearted recognition of the role of the original peoples of this State

and region is long overdue; and our official approval of the admirable goals of the Cherokee

Wolf Clan is appropriate at this time; now, therefore,

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE SENATE OF THE ONE HUNDRED THIRD GENERAL

ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE, THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

CONCURRING, that this General Assembly go on record as endorsing the approval of the

Cherokee Wolf Clan as recognized Native American Indians in the State of Tennessee.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that an appropriate copy of this resolution be prepared

for presentation with this final clause omitted from such copy

Now you tell Me , someone from the Cherokee nations best stop this before any Wannabee Clan can do what they are trying to do !
Come on can't they see what is behind this clan .. If you are not on the rolls you are just out of luck .. So are we going to accept any an all Clans now ....This makes me SICK ! Those of us that have fought all our lifes to be who we are an keep our satus as REAL NDN ppl . IF you have never written to a commission I suggest you do it before it is to late! Just my 2!!!!!!!!!!
