Enrollment of Mowas

I feel you Cherosage, in away the whole enrollment process has become a sham. There's a girl in Cali that's straight up White, but her mom married a full blood with connections who adopted her (I think) and had her in enrolled. She competes in carded powwows and stands out like a 3 -legged mule. It's amazing, especially when there are full bloods who for whatever reason can't get enrolled, and they usually really need help like from IHS (not that it's anything to write home about due to their lack of proper funding.), while a person that doesn't have 1 drop of Ndn blood prances around.

People are always telling me 'I've got lots of Indian blood', then I ask 'what's on your birth certificate?" So it's just like this girl in Cali, her birth records would show white, but she's enrolled as an Indian with full benefits. So unless you want to open a Casino, what is really the benefit of Fed. Recognition, especially since they can continue to take our lands whenever they please? With the shortage of reasonable housing areas like L.A., I believe they will start take more land back in the future.

My great grandparents were on the original Choctaw rolls in OK, but that and $4.00 will buy me a cup of Starbucks.
