BIU President's Message

Barbara Finley

Enid, Oklahoma

Among my many interests are Black Indians. It is my hope that your visit to our website results in generating your own interest in Black Indians too.

I remain committed to teach the truth about the treaties that affected my people of Indian Heritage. These 1866 Treaties are very important to Black Indians especially of the Five Civilized Tribes.

There are other lawsuits pending before the Supreme Court that are equally as important as our own.

Becoming educated is the key to holding those responsible for denying our rights to Due Process, Recognition, Access to Federal Programs, Financial Compensation and Sovereignty.

Learn more about Black Indians United Legal Defense and Education Fund, Harvest Institute Freedman Federation and others having legal claims against the United States Trustees on behalf of Freedmen Descendants.
