Muscogee (Creek) Nation second chief pleads guilty to embezzling from tribe.  Could face prison time and a large fine

By Skyler Cooper

Muscogee (Creek) Nation Second Chief Roger Dana Barnett pleaded guilty to embezzling about $150,000 from the Tribe.
Barnett was indicted on August 6, 2014.

Barnett admitted that, from April 2013 through April 2014, he embezzled more than $1,000 of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation funds from the Tribe’s Direct Assistance Fund, a tribal executive branch fund meant to aid tribal citizens in need.

The Government told the court it estimated the loss and restitution amounts to be approximately $211,000. The Government also told the court the direct assistance funds were embezzled by Barnett when he went to area casinos and withdrew the funds from ATMs. Barnett admitted he then used the money to gamble.
At the time of sentencing, Barnett faces the statutory maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Our Creek Culture – Exactly what is it? – the Past or Present?

(VOC: New topic, as requested.)

What is the culture of Mvskoke Nation? Everyone talks about preserving the CULTURE of the tribe. The Tribe spends hundreds of thousands of dollars preserving the CULTURE.

All my years I’ve always heard that the Ceremonial Grounds are the Mvskoke culture.

Since all Mekko’s of our gorunds have eaten of the forbidden fruit (money & position & fame), is the CULTURE gone?
Money talks to every man or woman, even leaders of our grounds.

I for one, will not fall prey to the money George and his NC shovel in the mouths of those who fall short of their beliefs.

I will live in my simple home, make my payments on my simple car and wear the clothes that I can afford to buy. I will never be one of George Tiger’s Hall of Famers, Supreme Court Justices or traveling companions. I’ll continue to work at my non-tribal job, helping those that I can and sleep well at night.

When a Mekko of a ground turns his head in passing, instead of speaking to one his own people it must be because of a guilty conscience rf shame.

Is the Mvskoke Nation’s CULTURE gone?

Eufaula Dorm (MCN School)

Please start this as a new topic! (VOC: New topic as requested by Help our Children)

What the hell is going on at eufaula dorm. My niece called me in the middle of the night to come get her because she is scared to death. I tried to call and talk to someone and there is no staff! I called today and was told the new priciple will not talk to parents that’s what staff for and was passed to some lady Colbert that don’t know a damn thing! My niece told me about bullying and locking kids in closets and beating then up. Boys sleeping in rooms with girls. Police showing up all the time and lots and lots of drugs. Staff outside on cell phone all night and won’t help her not be bullyed. Who at the tribe is in charge of the dorm? If you have kids in dorm get them out while you can it is so bad. They need our help!
