(The majority of Americans who descend from a Native American ancestor do not qualify for tribal membership. Their ancestors may have left the tribe long before the 1817 Treaty with the Cherokee, which lead to the creation of the Reservation Roll that listed the head of every Indian family residing on the east side of the Mississippi River on lands that were then or would thereafter be surrendered to the United States in exchange for citizenship. They received a life estate of 640 acres of land from the federal government. The government then took the 1835 Cherokee East of the Mississippi Census.) Children:
