john_cornsilk was kinda harsh, huh?

It's not about many of the individual's, it's the organization's and their heads that is what makes them Frauds. Many of the individual's, most likely are descendants of a tribe. But to claim that these "Groups" are legit, no, they are not recognized by any of the Tribes that they claim to come from.
Many of the people from different tribes were scattered all over the state's through the Indian Schools and the Relocation Act: Carlisle, Cantonment, and there are so many other's that the list would take too long to put up here. But they were still member's of a "tribe" and many of them stayed where they were sent, many did go home, but for those who stayed---that doesn't make a "Tribe" just a family and descendants, not a whole "Tribe". Now if they called themselves "Organizations" or something like that, I really don't think that anyone would have much problems with it, but to call themselves a full "Tribe" with so-called "Chiefs", now that is a problem.
