I just have a couple questions about your ideology, or your central idea. We talk here about thesis statements, so Id like to know the thesis that captures the essence of your lifes work.
Im of Cherokee descent, the Cherokees fought with Andrew Jackson against the Crete...
Are you a member of an American Indian tribe?
Katua-Cherokee. They disowned me, but thats okayI disowned back.
(Excerpt) Read more at thesandb.com ...
Last I checked : Crete was an island in the Mediterranean Sea.
katua is a Muslim male from north India...?
“katua” sounds like a disease.
Almost every white eyes I know that lives west of the Mississippi has a grandmother who was a “Cherokee princess”. It’s all part of the family lore.
Your tagline says it all about this fraud. Except for wife-killer, but that’s unproven as of yet.
He has almost completed the training to become a democrat/progressive politician. He now can lie EVERY time he opens his mouth. Once he gets his total lobotomy he will be ready to go.
;around here it is east of the Mississippi and South of Maryland....
I am from NY and the only people who told me that story were from the South East.
Commanches scalped my great-great-great grandmother, does that count? I never held it against them, she was part of the invasion and it came with the territory. Being 5 generations removed helps with the perspective of course.
Should have asked him where he learned to make bombs, and how he felt about one of his “bomb” students blowing up a cop, and how many people he may have “blown up” in his youth.
This has been going on since the beginning of history.
Along the way one of my Great Great Grandfather's who was married many times married a Chippewa lady from Sioux St. Marie, and another lady I think was Oneida. He married a wide variety of other ladies as well.
His career? Wagon Trail Boss.
This turkey doesn’t know when to shut up. LOL!
I doubt the Cherokees disowned him, they probably told him to a hike, and quick because he isn’t a Cherokee or anything close to it.
That was pretty funny. The interviewer is a complete idiot. Crete indians, indeed. He’s up a “crete” without a paddle. And Churchill is just beyond the pale. It is appalling to think that people in Colorado paid good money to have that raving maniac teach their kids. He is nearly incoherent. And God knows how many equally raving manias are still there teaching.
Robert E. Lee really was a descendant of an Indian princess tho she wasn’t Cherokee. In fact a large number of prominent Virginians were descended from her.
She only had one child and her line nearly died out as for several generations there was but a single child, then finally one had a bunch of children.
fake but accurate ?
Ward Churchill has been masquerading as an Indian for years behind his dark glasses and beaded headband. He waves around an honorary membership card that at one time was issued to anyone by the Keetoowah Tribe of Oklahoma. Former President Bill Clinton and many others received these cards, but these cards do not qualify the holder a member of any tribe. He has deceitfully and treacherously fooled innocent and naïve Indian community members ...

Grinnell thinks it’s a good college, and they bother to waste their money and time on a pompous bloated douchebag like Ward Churchill, FAKE Injun FAKE scholar FAKE human.
Kids, you’ll learn more from banging your head against a brick wall than from trying to listen to the likes of Ward Churchill.
That figures, an honorary Indian. I kinda think of him as a member of the Fugawi tribe because he never knows where he's at. :)
You never hear of anyone being a Ute, Apache or Hopi,etc. Always a Cherokee.
David Mamet’s play “November” had a wonderful send-up of Ward Churchill. The actor who played him was an absolute ringer for America’s most famous fake Indian.
I think we will find Churchill’s read birth certificate right next to Obama’s.
Right now all we know about them is that they were born, and in the case of Churchill, that is debatable.
Hope someone is still digging.
Oh, yeah...Chief Churchill. Did he eat people as most of his aboriginal brethren once did? So proud he is of his fake indian history.
One of my female ancestors has been inordinately difficult to trace, but I ran across an old letter that claimed she might have been something along those lines.
I figure she was as likely to have been the progeny of a stranded extraterrestrial flying saucer mechanic and a Dutch welldigger's daughter from Penn's Woods, but I have the sagacity to keep from spreading that particular theory without more proof.
