I'm only an 8th Cherokee but I have a lot of the features that go along with the tribe. Dark hair(not black though), I tan easy, i have a round face and small eyes with high cheek bones, but i do have blue eyes.
my great grandma was full blooded cherokee, that i know for a fact the rest of my family i'm not sure about my dad once figured it up to around 70 percent native am. 30% irish, scottish and something else don't remember what. i'm a mutt, but mutts usually make better pets.
A beloved Cherokee Grandmother told me to always say:"I am a Cherokee Woman; I'm not half anything!!!
This I truly believe has been my stepping stone to finding my heritage and my place in the Great Circle.
