Walkingfox, “I’ll tell you why I ask, we both want to get married and were told that she would lose more than half of her social security if we do.
We were both told by our parents that we are native Indians but we do not know much more?
I see by your writing that there might be hope for us?”
Welcome Beth and Marty from Carlisle, Massachusetts
To my tripod Mohegan/Pequot Alter site.
My honor and love for my Grandfather, Shechaim Ohjieshan (TALLFOX).
Sorry this has taken so long to get back to you, a little busy lately!
I see you, as did I, moved out of New England, maybe your reason was also health.
Beth and Marty, if you do have blood (Native American Ancestors) you will feel it, especially getting along in years as am I.
In Florida you many have already found out there are many seniors in your predicament with social security and this congress and their lack of caring.
Mind you that I cannot and never would change anything in our culture or ceremonies set down by my ancestors.
This is what has always been possible, native or not, in a traditional tribe.
Remember, the tribes up north that are on reservation (Casino Indians) might need to follow the laws of the government and not so much the laws of Creator?
We have always and will always follow Kiehtan (Creator) and if it does not conflict with Creator, follow the laws of the government.
This government does not recognize our people therefore our culture or ceremonies.
So, (yes) “Non-Recognized Tribes” do marry elders of many religions and beliefs and the government will not recognize the marriage.
Therefore this government cannot help themselves to ‘your hard earned right to your retirement fund’.
If you do go to a “Creator Fearing Tribe” and this tribe places you under the protection of Creator, you will most assuredly be recognized when your time come for your
The only time that it should ever count?
Thank you for your visit.
