None of that actually matters to be a Keetoowah you have to prove 1/4 degree of Cherokee blood and that is done by the CNO registeration department, they issue the required BIA letter of certification of your blood from the dawes roll.


And may I ask why not enroll if you meet the criteria. Chad Smith was duel enrolled, until the UKB banished him for Treason, the deputy Joe Grayson is duel enrolled, the Chief of the Keetoowah George Gickliffee was duel enrolled because he ran for CNO Council, and Chief too. If you are 1/4 you are entitled because you are Cherokee.
My CDIB says 1/2 Cherokee issued by Tahlequah Agency

But....
When I was researching the UKB website I noticed that they have this requirement:
1. Letter of Relinquishment from any other Indian nation, tribe or band of which you have been a member or a notarized Affadavit of Non-Membership (provided by the Enrollment Office); and

2. A certified copy of your 8.5 x 11" Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood showing at least 1/4 degree Keetoowah Cherokee blood.

I tried to find out more information about the 1949 roll but to no avail
I did notice that both my Grandparents are on it but none of there children
Grandma was not old enough to have a roll number she was born in 1907 and her Parents enrolled in 1904. Grandpa has a roll number.
But again I was trying to research farther back I can find my GreatGrandfather on the Miller Guinon Roll.

The more I read about all this the more I realize how History was distorted greatly and even more than I realized.
