Comment: Three lies caught on video:
1) Churchill claims there's no controversy about his being Indian among Indians. Wrong...there's a huge controversy about it among everyone, including Indians.
2) Churchill says "self-evidently, I am [an Indian]." There's nothing self-evident about it. Most people would guess him to be a white hippie leftist.
3) Churchill cites his associate membership in the United Keetoowah Band. Here's what the tribe had to say about that:
Tribe snubs prof
Cherokee band says Churchill's claim of membership a fraud
By Charlie Brennan
The statement, issued May 9 in the name of the tribal leader, Chief George Wickliffe, and posted on its Web site Tuesday, does not mince words:
"The United Keetoowah Band would like to make it clear that Mr. Churchill IS NOT a member of the Keetoowah Band and was only given an honorary 'associate membership' in the early 1990s because he could not prove any Cherokee ancestry."
The tribe said that all of Churchill's "past, present and future claims or assertions of Keetoowah 'enrollment,' written or spoken, including but not limited to; biographies, curriculum vitae, lectures, applications for employment, or any other reference not listed herein, are deemed fraudulent by the United Keetoowah Band."
