Freedmen to meet at MLK Center

The Freedmen Band of Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma will meet at 1 p.m. July 12 at the Martin Luther King Center, 627 N. Third St.

Attendants are asked to bring a covered dish.

The Cherokee Freedmen are individuals of African descent whose ancestors (descendants of mixed African Indians and or tribal slaves) were listed as “freedmen tribal members” on the Cherokee Nation Dawes Indian tribal rolls about 110 years ago.  

The meeting will provide updates on events in Washington, D.C., including the status of the Cherokee Nation v. Nash federal court  hearing, which affects enforcement of the rights of the Cherokee freedmen, and Oklahoma tribal events.
