Dukha - The Reindeer People Of Northern Mongolia
My daughter is convinced the Reindeer People of Northern Mongolia supply Santa with his reindeers. The Reindeer People descend from an ancient tribe. Their lives are guided by shamans and shaped by dreams and tradition. Thousands of years ago, their ancestors left North East China. They crossed deserts and ice; mountains and forests: spreading through Asia, Europe and the Americas. Some ancients believed these people flew. Whilst traveling in Mongolia, you may come across stones with carved images of flying reindeer. But it's not just the stones you can see. In Northern Mongolia's ancient coniferous forests, a few dozen families still live. Calling themselves the Tsaatan or Dukha, they trace their ancestry from the first Reindeer People.

Black Indian Slave Narratives
It is significant to know that the Freedmen of Indian Territory were a unique people with a unique lifestyle and culture. Most of the Freedmen were bilingual, although many did speak little or no English and only the language of their Indian slavemasters. The Oklahoma Slave Narratives contain many references to their culture and lifestyle, illustrating how immersed they were in the Native way of life.

Cherokee Freedmen win tribal citizenship lawsuit Read Ruling:
Oklahoma: The Cherokee Tribe's highest court has ruled that the Cherokee Freedman, descendants of African-American slaves who lived among the tribe, may claim full Cherokee citizenship.    The Judicial Appeals Tribunal said the Freedmen can retain citizenship and tribal privileges despite not having identifiable "Indian" blood.  "If the Cherokee people wish to limit tribal citizenship, and such limitation would terminate the pre-existing citizenship of even one Cherokee citizen, then it must be done in the open," the court wrote.  The court said the only way to legally terminate the Freedmen's citizenship is through the Cherokee constitution.  The current constitution, enforced in 1975, does not limit tribal citizenship by blood.  The Freedmen dispute began in the 1980s when Lucy Allen, 73, a Freedmen descendant, was barred from voting in tribal elections.
