fact & proof: This claim "of Yuchi gathered in Carter County", made by "Remnant Yuchi Nation" "Chief" Lee Vest, was first printed in the Bristol Herald Courier newspaper in June 2011.

...
The "Remnant Yuchi Nation" was created in 2007 from a group called the "Appalachian Confederated Tribes" created in Kingsport in 2006, the brainchild of Lee Vest. From the actual 2007 meeting's minutes: "At 6:00 p.m. on April 13, Lee told the tribe that he as Chief had decided for the good of the tribe to change our name from Appalachian Confederated Tribes to REMNANT YUCHI NATION. Lee discussed the connection of Cherokee/Yuchi heritage. He said that if you had Cherokee ancestors, then you also had Yuchi blood. Lee then told the history of the Yuchi in this region. He also told the benefits for the tribe of becoming State recognized. After he gave his reasons for the change, he asked for discussion. Several people spoke in favor of the change. Lee then asked for a show of hands for those who favored the change. 100% of the members present agreed with Lee for the name change. Lee then said that from this forward our tribe would be called the Remnant Yuchi Nation." Equating 'Cherokee' to 'Yuchi', then changing the group's name to 'Yuchi', has allowed the fraudulent "Remnant Yuchi Nation" to slip under the fraud-hunting radar of the Cherokee Nation, but not the anti-fraud interests of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation and its member, the real Yuchi Tribe.
Self-proclaimed "Chief" Lee Vest is not Yuchi and not Cherokee either: ---------------------------- Original Message ---------------------------- Subject: Re: Woodland Village site From: "Lee Vest" (leevest022@yahoo.com)
...
