    The Texas Cherokees: Tsalagi Nvdagi ("Land Of The Sun") w/ Chief Pappy Hicks

    in Religion

    Prerecorded...


    According to Chief D.L. "Pappy" Hicks (facebook)


    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.


    Those decisions by Texas and US Courts have not made the treaties with Spain, Mexico and Republic of Texas invalid.
