<quoted text>Oh do tell. Interesting supposed fact since NONE of my bills were paid.Check again on YOUR facts you will see that you have to live on the reservation for many things to be paid.You will also find out many other things are NOT paid for nor are they FREE for the Cherokee especially if they live off the REZ.
actually, health care is available to any native american at the Cherokee hospital, not just to Cherokees alone. If you do't have health care, it probably means you are a wannabe.

Too many know it alls on here. The thing with the Cherokee hospital is, it is for Indians only. Oh, they will tell you that isn't true and by law must see you, but ship you out and to Sylva quicker than you can say will I be okay.
