    Cherokees to restore slaves' descendants benefits - Yahoo! News

    Given the 2800 Freed Slave descendants that the Cherokee Nation does not to count in their jurisdiction, can this group receive the same help from Federal Govt to form their own entity with 'separate but equal rights' Can't they set up their own benefits, representation, and membership similar to incorporating a separate city county or state?

    In a divorce/custody case, don't the parties just divide and not be together and legally responsible or joined in any way? Can that be applied here to set up two independent entities, isn't that a step forward in a way?
