They are the product of a hand out society. They think the white people all owe them a living and they have been taken advantaged of all these years. The truth is, they are the privledged few who get to live on the reservation, lay on their a$$ and live off the gamblinbg cash cow. All because their family name is on the "Rolls". When others like me have more true red blood running through them are out here working and sweating and scratching to make a living, so we can take our family down there and pay their rip off prices and suport their lazy a$$!

You can buy books that tell all the names on the Roll or look it up on the internet. There were several Rolls made. Sometimes your family might make one Roll and then years later, not make the latest Roll. The final one was made in the 1960s I believe. Those lucky few were destined to hit the jackpot when gambling came to Cherokee. The rest of us were to be on the outside looking in.
