David Cornsilk is a modern day Martin Luther King to the Cherokee Freedmen and an outspoken critic of wannabe Indians and frauds
David Cornsilk is an enrolled member of the Cherokee Nation who lives in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. He is a genealogist and has a Bachelor of Science Degree from Northeastern Oklahoma State. He is a leading Cherokee nationalist today.
He spends his life trying to answer the question: What is an Indian? He is not the Cherokee Nation Registration Specialist. The Dawes Act established lists of members; these lists are still used today. Any person who has an ancestor on the Dawes roles can be accepted into the tribe, "though all it takes is one drop of blood."
Both Cornsilk and his father, John Cornsilk, are active in Cherokee Nation and United Keetoowah Band politics and were instrumental in winning citizenship rights for the Cherokee Freedmen as well as equal rights for gay Cherokee citizens. Cornsilk produces cartoons and political satire related to Cherokee Nation politics. He and his father run the Cornsilks.com website and political blog.
