    Kathi - i'm trying to understand the purpose of your interest and involvement is with this issue. haven't figured it out.
    - you just butt into local arguments about who's indian when somebody isn't quick enough to prove up?

    my family information was reviewed and verified already, and attested to by tribal members. others whine that they didn't see it, but haven't been able to document any problem with which to challenge the initial validation. the info can be re-verified at anytime by anybody willing to write to Standing Rock.
    there are only two very simple facts at issue here:
    1. my mom is an enrolled member of Standing Rock.
    2. i am my mom's son by blood.
    these two simple statements are either true or false.
    these are basic facts whose truth can be easily checked by any reasonable person.
    my assistance in checking these facts is irrelevant and potentially counter-productive: anybody who doesn't trust my word on the issue now is unlikely to trust any other words or photo reproductions that i submit as proof. the only way for you and others to obtain the quality of assurance that you want is to ground proof the data yourselves without involvement of the party in question, me.

    >The bottom line is because you can’t produce or have the BIA create the same documentation being a CDIB.
    >Nothing has changed in the Interior’s system since I last posted, it’s still a simple matter of math, subtraction of blood from one person to the next. The truth always prevails and your time will come. The sad part is you’ve made yourself so public that the ultimate embarrassment is coming down the road, you know it, and you feel it.

    that's funny. please let me know when you get your responses from checking the facts so i can remind you of your present words.
    if you understand math, you know that division and multiplication are both operations of scaling, each being the inverse of the other. if we're dealing with parent and the parent's natural child, it doesn't matter whose blood-quantum number you obtain since the number of the other person's is truly "a simple matter of math".

    >living off your supposed mother’s identity

    we all live off of our parents' identities: our skin is a product of our supposed parents, our nationality is a product of our supposed parents, our language and religion, our names, all are products of our supposed parents.
    - your supposed point is?

    these "political enemies" are not creations of my lack of producing my mother's enrollment documents. their animosity goes back a decade in some cases, and in others starting with my opposition to the recognition of culture clubs as state tribes. the bottom line is that half of them already know that i'm indian and find it easier and in their own political interest to play dumb, and the other half is hoping that the others' lies are true.

    what "ultimate embarrassment" on this issue is that the truth is at Standing Rock, and for some inexplicable reason, my self-chosen enemies, and apparently you, either refuse to try to access that information, or have obtained the information and refuse to share the results. curious. the claim repeats itself every time they say they Have Something ... and it proves to be false. i don't need credence from anybody but those i work with and already know. anybody else can either do the work themselves or resort to name-calling.

    but hey, if you wanna play the card cop, i'd be happy to meet you in Nashville
    and we can show each other "the ultimate embarrassment".
