The Cherokee Elders Council (website) was founded by Paul Thomas in Pryor, Oklahoma on July 9, 1996.
Paul Thomas was a larger-than-life person.
A military veteran, he dedicated his career to Law Enforcement, and after retirement he organized and ran a rehabilitation program for ex-offenders.
A tribal historian, he was also a "true gentleman." He was in the melee at the Cherokee Nation courthouse... photos exist of him swinging his cane during the riot incited by Chief Joe Byrd's goons.
He passed away Sept. 21 2006 of natural causes. He was 87.
He was a man with the gift of Charity.
When Blueotter's family was in transit from a Cherokee Gathering at Wilson's Creek Battlefield, they heard of the disaster while Passing through Pryor, OK, Paul's hometown. Paul and his wife took them in the middle of the night in the aftermath the F6 tornado in Oklahoma City in 1998.
Dr. Clifford N. Alford began his training at five years old, when his Grandmother, a Texas Cherokee Medicine Woman recognized his interest in herbs and the ways of Mother Earth. She taught him an average of two to three months per year for the next fourteen years. After serving with the US Army and Bureau of Prisons and later extensive travel, Dr. Alford continued his formal education as well as being mentored for eleven years in the spiritual practices of the Eastern Band of the Cherokee People. He entered into the full time practice of Cherokee Medicine which involves the living and teaching of all the Cherokee culture.

Tonight, our PRERECORDED guest is:
Buddy A-namtaysay (website) is chief of the Cherokee Tribal Council of Illinois.
As a Special Forces Green Beret who led a group of other secret warriors, he served in Laos as a U.S. Army/CIA operative in The "Secret War" in Laos during the 1970s under the command of Capt. D.L."Pappy" Hicks, past Chief of The Texas Cherokees, who is also War Chief of The Cherokee Nation of Mexico.
Put on your seat belts, ladies and gentlemen... Prepare to be schooled in the realitty of American Secret Warfare.
Buddy says "Have we become so complacent, so coward and intimidated by this government that we have forgotten our own revolutionary birthright of rebellion and dissent? Have we become so paralyzed by the eleventh of September that we would give up our liberty and freedom for the promise of a security that does not exist by a government that now threatens our very lives? What will it take before we finally realize the true reality of this crisis? How many more terrorist attacks, senseless wars, flag draped caskets, grieving mothers, paraplegics, amputees, stressed out sons and daughters before we finally begin to break the silence of this shameful night? Let us open up our hearts and speak in a way we have never spoken before knowing that lives now depend on it, and the very survival of our nation is now at stake."
This week, we honor two of America's secret heros... Cherokee Chiefs Pappy Hicks and Buddy Anamtaysay Hosick.
Tonight, listen to Texas Cherokee Chief Captain D.L. "Pappy" Hicks (facebook) Special Forces Commander of the Secret War in Laos.
The Texas Cherokees (website) were driven out by force In battles fought on the 15th and 16th of July 1839. No one left of his own accord. Many DID NOT flee Texas, but hid out in the woods until the army left. Many returned to their fields and started to live as "white" citizens for survival purposes.
Many lost their Cherokee heritage; some of them hung on to them and have never wavered about being Cherokee. We wavered only when it came to living within the bounds of Texas.
Remember, a red man couldn't vote or hold office until 1924. Even after that period, it was best to be "Black Dutch," or something that was dark, than it was to be and American Indian. People shouldn't depend entirely upon historians and their books to give them facts about the red man.
It is also impossible to "discover" historical events with a couple of books. Especially since I have read so many written by people who only rely upon other "historian's" document "facts." Not all court decisions are given with justice; just legal.
