“The story of Lost Bird is a vivid illustration of how a faded old photograph, over a century old, can have the power to move people to make discoveries long after the subject and the photographer are dead. On her own trail of tears, during her short life, Zintka was robbed of her name and her mother and any opportunity to learn about her own culture.”
Why can the Bureau of Indian Affairs ignore public documentation, including a 2011 Determination of Heirship issued under sole authority of the District Court of Oklahoma? It seems no one has authority to enforce the law. Can the BIA break the law by pretending the State of Oklahoma jurisdiction over any and all Indian Heirship and Probate matters doesn’t exist, as conferred at the time of statehood, reaffirmed by the 2004 American Indian Probate Reform Act, acknowledged by the Chickasaw Nation and the Department of Interior?

Your children are just like mine. They are children.
Children deserve to be protected. We should provide generations to come an environmentally clean environment. What about employment related paid time off (PTO) for those occasions when parents should stay at home to care for a sick child? In a modern society, paid maternity and paternity leave does make sense, too. I have talked to far too many mothers who feel particularly torn when they must chose work over their bonding time with their baby.
Affordable child care is required for people to go to work while they are left to merely hope their children will learn constructive things during the day in a safe environment. We live in communities which should provide families places for frolic and play while recognizing many are on a tight budget.
Why you might add? Do it for the love of children…
Everyone needs to know they matter, their families matter and empowerment is a tangible kind of a thing.
Ask yourself what kind of a locality, nation and global community do you desire to live in and what legacy do you want to leave?
IT TAKES ONLY SIX MINUTES without oxygen to the brain for brain death to occur!
No one wants to think a 21 year old should have a Will or Trust instrument but when wealth or minor children are involved, Estate Planning tools must be used!
Bobbi Christina married her “adoptive brother” a little over a year ago. Assuming there was no “pre-nup,” Christina was set to inherit the full $12 million fortune from Whitney Houston’s estate by the age of 30….if Bobbi Christina dies without having a Will or Trust then her husband will presumably stand in her shoes and take the inheritance (unless something was provisioned in her mother’s estate to prevent such a result). Otherwise, if Christina survives with mental incapacity, she is likely to be under her husband’s care (positive or negative in light of the specific history of any relationship). Surviving parents or extended family would have a near impossible legal battle on their hands to try to override the legal priority of a man’s status as a lawful husband.
Sad, so sad! While the tumultuous ins and outs of the rich and famous may seem inevitable, the lack of knowledge about Estate Planning tools need not be anyone’s fate! See http://www.educationalfamilyestateapps.com for an affordable and convenient resource to learn more!
