SYRACUSE, N.Y., Aug. 31, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — By researching the United States history and the country’s legal records, author Robert J. Shenandoah has concluded that the Haudenosaunee – or Iroquois – should not be forced to register with the Selective Service System in order to be eligible for United States student financial assistance. In “Tenor and Reality: A Stark Contradiction Throughout” (published by WestBow Press in March 2016), he presents the historical evidence for his assertion, noting that the interpretation of the historical, legal records is the key.
“The fact that I was denied FSA after my first year of study at SUNY Oswego was the initial inspiration to write this book,” Shenandoah says. “Because I was aware then, and am still of the mind now, that I am not a United States Citizen. I am a Citizen of the Haudenosaunee: Onondaga Nation.”
Covering all of North America, Shenandoah argues that all Original Peoples should not be taken as a single entity, examining treaties and legislation that grouped all together and some that recognized individual entities.
It is his hope that readers will seriously consider the evidence he has presented and see that it supports the crux of his argument. “While collegiate Financial Aid may not seem to be important on a ‘first look,’ this Student of American Studies is of the mind that higher education/training is a necessary component of life in the 21st Century,” he says. “No longer can Original Turtle Islanders ‘survive’ in the forest or on the plains as in the ‘days of old.'” For more details about the book, please visit https://www.westbowpress.com/en/bookstore/bookdetails/714811-Tenor-and-Reality-A-Stark-Contradiction-Throughout

About the Author
Robert J. Shenandoah has experienced the very issue he argues in this project. His research has shown that he has made the correct choice not to register with the Selective Services System. Shenandoah believes that the act of registration defeats the historical record of the United States of America and the way of life of the Haudenosaunee.
