    Time to Respond, Call to Arms!!

    As Natives are asleep at the wheel the "legitimization" of the Remnant Yuchi crawls along, rewriting history and making false assumptions seem somewhat more palatable.

    The great Remnant Yuchi statesman- scholar and mouthpiece Dr James Glanville(Born and raised in London, England???) will be writing a presentation on the "Saltville Gorget" in the Febuary issue of the Genuine Indian Relic Society publication. This is a well respected magazine with national exposure.
    You can bet that this 100% british-caucasian Remnant Yuchi full fledged tribe member will use his article in an attempt to somehow suggest his "tribe" are the very folks who created the sacred Mississippian art which is the subject of this issue. Legitimacy thru suggestion??
    Should someone tell them that the "brakebill" style rattlesnake gorget is found all over the southeastern US and exclusively as burial items?
    Should someone tell them how offensive it is to use grave robbed goods to legitimize a fake Indian tribe?? The knife is being stuck in and twisted while we are being slapped, people!!!!
    Here is your chance. Tell the publisher what you think!!

    Of other importance, a friend in Bristol sent me an article from the Bristol Herald Courier (11/19/09) which names this same 100% caucasian-British- Remnant Yuchi member chemistry professor will be speaking at the annual Christmas dinner for the Bristol Historical Association on his personal version of the Holston River before the white man.
    Of course you can guess this presentation to the rich upper crust of the Tri-Cities(home of the fake Yuchi) will include a suprise that the Remnant Yuchi were hiding on the river till 2007 and somehow need the support of the rich, influential folks there to get their sought after state recognition.
    Will this change history? Will people believe this?
    Will this make people want to support his fake tribe?
    Again, here is your chance!! Tell these folks what they are about to hear.
    If we do not make an effort to counter these attempts, it will be us who are crying next year when this fake tribe gets recognition.
    Your humble servant,
