Court hearings Concerning Central Band Of Cherokee

Hearings have been in process for a few days now and I am finding NO media coverage and no one seeking information on this matter.
I am wondering why our People are consistently being told we do not exist, we have no rights, no voice and I am wondering WHY.
What possible threat to anyone could our existence be?
WHY are there people that spend their time bashing us for what reason?
Have we taken the fed 'Subject' funding from anyones pockets?
Does our existence in any way cause anyone to be harmed?
Would someone please explain to me WHY there is such an effort to deny we exist?
During the so called gvt effort to eradicate our people, the last to be driven out were given english names but it seemed to be a foredrawn conclusion that our families would not survive so they did not record their Cherokee Names and now they say we, the descendants of those that survived and those that escaped do not exist as far as they are concerned and they will go to any depths to continue to hide their own wrongs against our Ancestors and therefore US.
Someone explain to me how and why this is acceptable to any moral or intelligent person (s) or agencies

buku, love your avatar and thanx for responding.
I have contacted every media possible near and wide, the latest being Channel 5 News.
The fact is, I am beginning to think that every one in the area that refuses to acknowledge, comment or investigate are of the line of yonegs that stood by and watched our people murdered, their children taken, their hair cut off and language silenced and finally, marched to death and suffering by way of the Trail Where They Cried and it should be known that their voices as well as ours STILL cry out for justice and WILL be heard!
Not only Justice for the sake of the horrors our Ancestors endured but for the horrors our People are still expected to endure.
They still attempt to isolate us, manipulate and control us but they are no longer dealing with Peoples that hoped the ypnegs would be true to their word and their promises. Those have long since been found to have been words spoken in the wind. No substance!
We have folks that are 'recognized' that look down their noses at us. Why? They are subjects of a cruel task master and have no idea that they are NOT free at all. We on the other hand ARE!
The farce of what they call a hearing will end but our Voices will continue. They may find for those that seek to take from anothers labors for themselves and whether they are granted this or not will not change the fact that having something that was not theirs (sounds like their ancestors huh?) to have, for the simple reason they did NOT work for it themselves, their indifference and disrespect for those that did and to whom it rightfully belongs, will in fact expose them as the lazy, grab and growl thugs they are. In other words their works will speak louder than their words.
While the medias and all others stand back and watch as our people are once again portrayed as unworthy of respect or dignity or Rights, let it be known that their words and actions do NOT make it so!
Will The Cherokee Stand? We Always DO and WILL!
WaDo buku for your response. You have cared enough to read and speak. WaDo (Thank You)

I am very sorry for your people having to suffer I don't think that it is right! You know the African Americans really think that they had it bad but no one ever looks at how bad the indian people were treated , it was and still is worse than anyone realizes! I respect all of you , who still fight for there right to live free . You shouldn't have to it's not right! But who are we to say anything , to the governent we are nothing but I hope that one day everything will work out for you and your people! Good luck and keep fighting ! Keep your head up ! Everything will work out you just can't give up!

WaDo for your response and support. Men like you are few and far between. Honor is something that you show and comes from a sincere heart. With Respect, I Thank you.
We have never given up nor will we accept the attitudes and platitudes of those that fall into the category of the self righteous that condemn Truth and Honor in exchange for their personal comfort zones bought and paid for by the Blood Sweat,Tears and Lives of our People from the very begining of the onslaught of the yonegs.
There is a verse in a song sung by one of our People that says, If they did it to me, who's to say they won't do it to you.
That one line sums up what has always been done to our People and is currently being done to all people of integrity, principles and honor. Why? Because those things condemn the guilty that believes truth can be destroyed and history in fact can be hidden. They are Wrong!
What the yonegs have spoken in the wind is now returning upon their heads in a whirlwind. It comes and will not be stopped for truth defeats lies. Lies always reveals the liars for there is no honor among them.
Again Kyle, WaDo (Thank You) You would have been one of the few that helped our People of the past. I am honored by your response and my People Thank you

It is all about the cut of the casino money. The people on the reservation all get a share in the casino profits, and if more were brought on to the rolls, the cut would be smaller per person. I have 16th Cherokee and it is more than some on the rolls, but I am considered an outsider. I have spent time and hunted with some on the reservation. The older generation seem to still be good people and haven't been corrupted by the casino money. The younger group- under 40- are hate filled , lazy, you all owe me a living believing people. they dont want to work, yet the resent anyone else working on the reservation that is not on the rolls. These are the ones that want to keep the rolls small. The casino money is one of the worse things to happen to the Cherokee people. Keep up the fight!
