This means absolutely nothing to African-Americans, Afro-Native Americans and any movement for reparations/restitution on our part. As a matter of fact, the Five Civilized Nations have begun the process to revoke the citizenship of their African descended members. The reason this was done so that they wouldn't be able to recieve any of the federal monies that have been coming to their nations since the Clinton Administration. I suspect that this may have been one of the terms of the agreement as well as the majority of Freedmen having been the former slaves of the so-called Five Civilized Nations. Allowing these black people to get restitution in that manner is what I believe would set the precedent for restitution/reparations.
