      Davis’s book is part family genealogy, part academic text and a completely sobering look at how former black slaves of Native American tribes, and mixed-race descendants, have been treated. The Records of this office show: That prior to Octo , applications were received by the Commission to the Five Civilized Tribes for the enrollment as citizens by intermarriage of the Cherokee Nation of the following named persons whose names appear upon the partial roll of Cherokee citizens, approved by the Secretary of the Interior, opposite the numbers following their respective name.

      Cherokee citizens by blood took an appeal to this court from so much of that decree as adjudged that persons intermarrying with Cherokee citizens prior to November 1, , were entitled to share in the Cherokee property, which appeal is numbered in this court ; and the Cherokee Nation prosecuted a similar appeal, numbered A white man who married a female member became adopted and was listed as an intermarried citizen. The number of these folks increased so rapidly that strict laws were enacted regarding these unions. The cost of a license was expensive and at one time it amounted to $ with the Choctaws.

      Many people’s grandparents have told them the same thing. There is a distinction, of course, between actual, provable citizenship of the Cherokee Nation, and purported heritage. But the interesting thing is not why Warren’s clung to her family lore for so long, it’s why so many white people in America claim Cherokee heritage to begin with. On Nov. 11, , the Nation passed a law stating that “intermarriages between Negro slaves and Indians, or whites, shall not be lawful.” For decades, Cherokee citizens – including my family – practiced the institution of slavery, which they adopted from the Southern United States.
