Every once in a while some story about some group of $20 Cherokees pops up. Some foolish reporter with some foolish editor allows some quotes from Chief Joe Steps in Buffalo Chips, and the group all of the sudden gets some degree of credibility. The newspaper that published this bunk needs to be taken to task. How much effort does it take to make a phone call to one of the three recognized tribes?

Maybe the legitimate tribes should charge each of these circuses for use of the Cherokee name, making per capita payments to each federally-recognized Cherokee. It'd either make us rich, or these people would all of the sudden stop being Cherokee.

Trying to "stop" them is like trying to stop a swarm of killer bees with a fly swatter.
