Tennessee American Indian Recognition sign now

Tennessee American Indians deserve the right of enfranchisement and to be established as State Recognized Tribes, Bands and Groups with full legal rights and protections.

These Tribes, Bands and Groups have strongly influenced the heritage of this great State and have left their mark by way of names of rivers, mountains, towns, and counties, by introducing local crops and medicinal herbs, and in countless other ways.

Too long their lack of enfranchisement has been neglected. The struggles of the Native American Indian Peoples including physical confinement, separation of families, suppression of language, traditions and culture as well as pervasive restrictions on arts, crafts, industry and agriculture have contributed to an economic disadvantage with which the Native American Indian People still contend.

I wish to see the Tennessee Native American Indian able to benefit his/her particular communities through enabling them to work through tourism development, jobs creation, new economic development incentives, new health care opportunities, and new education opportunities.

I also wish to remove current barriers for Native American Indian Artists and Craft Persons to expand their trade in compliance with Federal law.

I wish for your support, within your respective legislative house, on either
   Senate Bill 3123 (SB3123) or
   House Bill 3299 (HB3299)

I and the between 40,000 and 170,000 other Tennessee Native American Indians thank you for your support with this bill.
