    Some Native Americans I've seen on social media are trying to say Natives didn't really play a big part in enslaving Black people in America and so on.

    What part did they play? I already know about how the 5 civilized tribes enslaved our people, then afterwards, denied them access from Native benefits/identity.

    Myself and @Supper posted stuff on this other threads.....the tribes out West really played no part but as you already stated: 5 Civilized Tribes are the ones who played a key role

    Damn that, why are there tribes still denying its Black members their tribal benefits and acknowledgement of their own link in the tribe itself? The history is written in terms of which tribes enslaved Black people but some of them have been even more reluctant than whites to acknowledge their involvement or at the very least acknowledge their Black tribe members.

    If I remember correctly, the Seminole tribe in Florida welcomed escaped slaves into their community and they lived peacefully among each other

    There were “free people of color” who also owned slaves. Usually Mullatos but not always. It’s a complicated issue. I know there is this push to dish out smoke to various groups perceived to be anti black (even Africans) but Native Americans were not and are not the problem. They have suffered immensely since this country began

    Most afro-descended people who owned slaves were actually family members they purchased; the ones who owned slaves and mistreated them like whites did, were usually mulatto or afro-Amerindian in a state where mulattos/mustees were considered non-black/different caste

    The Eastern/South Eastern Natives that owned slaves actually imposed "Black Codes" on their slaves
