Positive review about a legal guide

Someone who bought my online or mobile accessible legal Guide in Estate Planning and child Guardianship found it to be a comfort in getting through what might seem to be a difficult subject matter:

“As a retired couple, we needed Helen’s services and expertise to create our individual wills and end-of-life directives in clear and concise verbiage because we have no children. Helen provided us printed information and worksheets that made the process far less mysterious and removed the stress we felt. She was eager to share her knowledge of the laws and to guide us in the direction that benefits us. She was the perfect advocate and we will trust her to take care of any future legal issues that we may encounter.”

Consider buying your copy of my Guide and associated worksheets at my website (www.educationalfamilyestateapps.com) or at e-Reader outlets.

Purported American Indian Land Conveyances

A court case from the 10th Circuit addresses fraud and fraudulent “purported” conveyances of American Indian allotment lands in which the court held:

The Begay and Mrs. Cecil Navajo allotments were still held in trust by the United States, pursuant to the provisions of the General Allotment Act, 25 U.S.C. § 331, et seq. (1976). We agree.

See https://casetext.com/case/begay-v-albers.

Then in U.S. v. Mottaz, 476 U.S. 834 (1986), the Court found that 25 U.S.C. Section 345 applies more when an original allotment is the subject matter and when the claim is brought forth when there is lawful entitlement by virtue of any Act of Congress. “The structure of § 345 strongly suggests, however, that § 345 itself waives the Government’s immunity only with respect to the former class of cases: those seeking an original allotment.” In fact, Section 345 has been used in many cases to bring quiet title actions against private parties other than the federal government. From the case text, there are two ways types of jurisdiction available to a federal District Court under Section 345 and the most important is when ii) proceedings are “in relation to” the claimed right of a person of Indian descent to land that was once allotted.

Interesting to note that 28 U.S.C. Section 2415, as laid out under sub part (c) does not bar commencement of actions when the it involves establishment of title to, or right of possession of, real or personal property. In the fraudulent land sales during my Grandmother Susie’s probate (within five months of each other by Theresa Robinson and Josephine Brown Graham) and against my father’s rights as the only surviving heir and a child at the time, Congressional land restrictions were not removed by the Secretary of Interior and neither could the District Court of Oklahoma take its proper jurisdiction. 

Indian land theft was prevalent and pervasive as my research uncovered in “Deceit in Oklahoma: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/deceit-oklahoma-helen-nowlin. Don’t leave things to chance.

Protect the Children!

I want to share with people why voluntary legal guardianship is the best way to circumvent state jurisdiction. Why should anyone want to try to make I.C.W.A. work when it doesn’t? Any parent whether native or not will benefit from having this information, too.

In times like these when we are observing a heightened degree of a militarized police state (https://secure.everyaction.com/PUTZciBozU-yksXg_duOpQ2), please, don’t leave the children vulnerable!

I have additional thoughts about this and how tribal governments can play a greater role in the lives of their members by securing access to legal education like to my online legal Guide Service. Some of this discussion is available under the Products tab on my website. I am available for consultation. Help me to spread the word (on WordPress)!

Thank you.

Offering Essential Information

For many Americans, standing up for their rights in a civil court proceeding is made much more difficult by a general lack of understanding of the complicated processes, and by an inability to pay for legal counsel to help.

Government Obligations and American Indians

The government’s relationship with and duties to Native American individuals and tribes are generally defined in the first instance by applicable statutes and regulations. Many of those original statutes are still in tact and applicable, unless expressly overwritten. Malfeasance, lack of due diligence or any other intentional act should be fully reviewed and considered based on the legal requirements governing at the time it occurred and equally so, legal requirements today if those illegalities are allowed or perpetuated by individuals now.

There is no implied right by anyone under any guise to avoid what the law, or clear objective facts or moral consciousness requires. Due Process of law does not mean lip service. It is never satisfactory to say, “It happened so long ago, redress is not worth the time.” Due process is on a time continuum. It is as important then as it is now! It does not diminish by whim or fancy.


Under both federal and state laws, efforts to diminish a person’s rights are against the law. The following provisions are not exclusive and there are many more. We start with these:

Rely on 18 U.S.C. § 241 which states: 

If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or

If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured—

Further rely on Oklahoma State law under 15 O.S. § 58: 

Actual fraud is:

Actual fraud, within the meaning of this chapter, consists in any of the following acts, committed by a party to the contract, or with his connivance, with intent to deceive another party thereto, or to induce him to enter into the contract:

1. The suggestion, as a fact, of that which is not true, by one who does not believe it to be true.

2. The positive assertion in a manner not warranted by the information of the person making it, of that which is not true, though he believe it to be true.

3. The suppression of that which is true, by one having knowledge or belief of the fact.

4. A promise made without any intention of performing it; or,

5. Any other act fitted to deceive.
