    3. Sincere condolences to both of you. Joe, my darling companion of 59 years, died in July, age 82. Joe spent over 20 years in the Army so he had a military funeral. Although his main branch was Army Artillery, he was also a ranger/ parachutist and Green Beret and served with an Armor unit in Texas. I'm very proud of him and will miss him forever. angelyn ----- Original Message ----- From: "Judy White" <jwhite@loganet.net> To: <chahta@rootsweb.com> Sent: Thursday, November 24, 2011 5:04 PM Subject: Re: [CHAHTA] To All... > Dusty > > My father left on his journey 2 years ago at this time.

    3. Dusty My father left on his journey 2 years ago at this time. Isn't it funny how people far away remind us of what we have lost. My dad was in World War II also, and was what they called a tunnel rat, he would go in tunnels and bring out the people who were hiding there usually from their own people so they wouldn't be killed.

    3. The May issue of BISHINIK, the official newspaper of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, has 7 pages of names whose records need to be brought up-to-date. An application for Tribal Membership/Voters Registration is included: however, I do not have the ability to add it as an attachment. The BIA requires an official Certificate of Death be sent to the Oklahoma Choctaw membership department in order for a name to be taken off the membership list. If you have reason to believe your name or that of a loved one, friend, is on this list, I will check the list and let you know. As for the Tribal Membership/Voters Registration application, I suggest you contact the Nation: Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma P.O. Box 1210 Durant, OK 74702 Although I am a registered Choctaw, I am NOT an employee of the Oklahoma OR Mississippi Choctaws. Please do NOT send me your new address or the name of someone who is a deceased member. I will check the list for names, but it is up to YOU to notify the Nation if you have a new address.

The medicine bag was made by a member of the Lakota Nation at Pine Ridge. The medicine bag has been blessed. Is there some protocol to thanking the Lakota man who made the bag?

    2. Hi Folks: Hope everyone's Christmas/Holidays were blessed and I'm looking forward to discoveries of new family info for each listmember in the coming year! Typically we get a bunch of new listmembers after Christmas (we got 4 just today) as people are getting new computers, making New Year's resolutions to do more genealogy work, etc. In the years that I've been doing this job I have been so impressed by our list-members kind willingness to help newbies find info, doing lookups and sharing. Let's keep up the good work and welcome those newcomers. Hope you got what you wished for at Christmas (I got a brand-new fancy barn!!...we've been needing one for 20 years). If anyone has found interesting new genealogy sites, read new books, or has a brick wall they'd like to post, please do so. I will mention a book I just finished reading - "The Dawes Commission and the Allotment of the Five Civilized Tribes, 1891-1914" by Kent Carter who is the Regional Admin. of the National Archives, Southwest Region in Fort Worth, Texas where the Dawes Comm. records are stored. It's not what I would call a page-turner as far as entertainment, but DEFINITELY instructive in the comings and goings of the Commission before, during and after the allotments. I was amazed to find out what a mess the whole process was. dusty List Admin.

    2. Angelyn, It has been quite a while since last we spoke. Hope all is well you and yours. I looked in the Favre family history book and although I am a bit confused with spellings, have a bit of information regarding your question... This is all based on Beauregard Favre's study. He is spelling Pistikioknay (Ann V. Lewellyn) father's name as Pushmatosha. Please understand I am skimming for the information, but he writes on Page 10: This time I visited the Alabama State Archives at Montgomery, Ala. I checked the Halbert Papers. Mr. Halbert was an educator among the Choctaws and his personal papers are in the archives at Montgomery. He kept census records and many other notes and data, but he had no record of Pushmatosha being married or having children. He did list Pushmatosha's sisters. I don't know if that will help or answers your question, but that is what I have. Jeanie In a message dated 6/13/2008 5:06:35 P.M.

    1. [CHAHTA] Choctaw Code Talkers
    2. To All: Vicki Prough, Genealogy Advocate of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma has asked that I pass the following along, and I am glad to do so: HELP HONOR THE WWi AND WWII CODE TALKERS!! Help is needed from everyone across the United States so that legislation can be passed in the United States Congress to recognize the original Native American Code Talkers. Chief Gregory E. Pyle and Assistant Chief Gary Batton of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma are currently working with members of the U. S. Senate and U. S. House of Representatives to pass a bill that will make it possible to issue medals for service as a Code Talker. They had 40 meetings in two days during their most recent trip to Washington D. C. to ask for support for legislation to honor Code Talkes from all tribes. Congressman Dan Boren has introduced HB 4544 which currently has 95 co-sponsors. We need 289 co-sponsors to this bill and many Congress people need to hear from someone who lives in their district before they will agree to sign on. Senator James Inhofe has introduced S 2681, and it currently has 21 co-sponsors. We need 67 co-sponsors on this bill. All Senators and Congress-people from Oklahoma have signed on and now we need to gather support from the other 49 states. Native American language being used as code was made famous by the Navajos in WWII. Their service was recognized with medals in 2000. however, members of other Native American tribes also used their languages as unbreakable top-secret codes in WWI and WWII. Choctaws were the first to use their Native language as 'code' to transmit messages on the field during WWI. Ironically, these men voluntarily served this country and used their own language to help win the war six years before the Native American Citizenship Act. It is also ironic that at the same time the Choctaw language was being used to benefit the war effort, Native languages were being banned in government schools. All of the Choctaw Code Talkers are now deceased. Only a few living children of the Choctaw Code Talkers remain. Recognition of these men is needed now, before the children's generation is lost. HB 4544 and S 2681 allows a gold medal to be presented to each tribe, with a silver duplicate medal presented to individual Code Talkers or their families. Bronze medals will be sold by the Unites States Mint, and all costs will come from the revolving fund for such activities of the Treasury, with no appropriates necessary. Please contact the Congress-people and Senators who represent you and ask them to support these bills as a co-sponsor. The honor is long overdue. For help with maps on who your Congressman or Senator is: http://nationalatlas.gov/printable.html Then you can contact your congressman with direct e-mail, phone numbers or addresses available on: www.house.gov. It is hightly recommended that e-mail or hone calls be the contact method. If mailing through the postal services, please direct the information to the state offices, as the mail in Washington, D.C. is slow due to security measures. You can find the entire bills at: http://thomas.loc.gov/ dusty
