By Blood tells the story of the “freedmen”—African Americans who trace their lineage to freed slaves who became members of various tribes, including the Seminole and Cherokee Nation—in this troubling documentary.   150 years later, the Cherokee and Seminole Nations, now wealthy tribes with land, casinos and business holdings, continue to deny tribal rights to Freedmen descendants arguing that they are not members of their tribe “by blood.”


***By Blood is a troubling documentary.  A thought-provoking film—with extras including bonus scenes—this is recommended.  Video Librarian, Feb/March 2018       Read the full review here
