The State of Alabama is Clueless

The State of Alabama also recognizes the Northeast Alabama Cherokees and the Echota Cherokees as Cherokee tribes, despite the fact that they are not. It takes more than have a few documentable ancestors to be a Cherokee tribe.
If these groups were legit, the EBCI, UKB and CNO would all welcome them as fellow Cherokee sovereigns. But these three tribe all question the legitimacy of these people, especially since some of them charge money for membership.

If Alabama is wrong about these "Cherokee" tribes, could it not also be possible that they're wrong about the MOWAs?
