Beautiful Blessings, Love, Respect, In the last several years, I had found out through a dear friend Debbie of many Nations, who did my research of my family history through Ancestry. Com. Even though she found history back to the 1700’s but the Census was not established until middle 1800’s. Both biological parents are Cherokee, Choctaw. But I was raised by my adoptive parents, an Aunt, Uncle. The Aunt is my biological mother’s sister. I have tried several times to ask to be added to Tribe, one being the Eastern Cherokee Tribe. But because my ancestors were of the Dawes Roll, I was denied because they told me I was Western Tribe. I would need to contact the Nations of Oaklahoma, which said I didn’t have enough proof. Even though I sent them documents. I am very disappointed ☹️
