United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians - UKB Membership - Ward Churchill

Ward Churchill

Ward Churchill, a former Professor of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado, has long claimed to be of Indian descent." In 1992, Churchill wrote elsewhere that he is one-eighth Creek and one-sixteenth Cherokee. He was granted honorary associate membership in the UKB. His public statements that he was a member of the UKB created controversy, because Churchill failed to distinguish tribal enrollment from honorary associate membership. He has made a career in writing and speaking about issues related to Native Americans, and has contended that he has varying amounts of Indian ancestry. During an intense period of controversy, news organizations were unable to find any evidence of any Indian ancestry.

Churchill does not possess an issued Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood (CDIB); he is not eligible for any federal benefits reserved for Native Americans. The UKB stated in 2005 that he is not eligible for official membership in the tribe because he cannot satisfy the blood quantum requirement.

Famous quotes containing the words churchill and/or ward:

    The master class seldom lose a chance to insult a woman who has the ability for something besides service to his lordship.
    —Caroline Nichols Churchill (1833–?)

    That man is to be pitied who cannot enjoy social intercourse without eating and drinking. The lowest orders, it is true, cannot imagine a cheerful assembly without the attractions of the table, and this reflection alone should induce all who aim at intellectual culture to endeavor to avoid placing the choicest phases of social life on such a basis.
    —Mrs. H. O. Ward (1824–1899)
