Welcome to the Continental Society website. CSDIW was organized in Atlanta, Georgia in 1988. Our organization is comprised of women who are citizens of either the United States of America, The Dominion of Canada, or Mexico, who are not less than sixteen years of age and is the lineal descendant of a Native American or Immigrant American ancestor who participated in any capacity, such as Passive Service, or in actual hostilities, one against the other, during the period May 14, 1607 to 1900. Acceptable service is listed on the Membership page of this website.
Our objectives are to strengthen fellowship and to encourage cooperation between descendants of Native Americans and Immigrant Americans; to preserve records and historic sites associated with Native Americans; to promote education through scholarships to Native American Students, and to provide books and school supplies to Native American schools.
This Governor General is honored to begin her term. The incoming executive board endeavors to implement the objects of the society to their fullest. I noted in my acceptance speech how much it meant to me to accept the role of Governor General at the Annual Council in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on September 15-18, 2022. “I have a close connection to this great state. My mother was born in Jenks, my grandparents were married in Sapulpa and are buried in Wewoka. My great grandparents were married in 1900 in Indian Territory and three great grandparents and three 2nd great grandparents are buried in Oklahoma.”
My project will support UNITY – United National Indian Tribal Youth with emphasis on the individual Tribal Youth groups in various states. My fundraising pin is the Rising Sun which means ‘constancy’. My hope for continued unity and peace of our Society.
We encourage the membership of descendants of Native Americans. If you are a direct descendant of a Native American, you will be recognized with a certificate and the opportunity to purchase our new insignia teepee pin that can be worn on your official ribbon.
