    I know I am Native American

    but what I don't know is which tribe we derive from.... does anyone here know how I would be able to find out? Like, the easiest (less dramatic) way to find out? I know my grandfather has the Native American blood and he is originally from Arizona but I don't know much about it...

    Native American Racism

    "Black people yelling "racism!" White people yelling "reverse racism!" Chinese people yelling "sideways racism!" And the Indians ain't yelling ****, 'cause they dead. So everybody bitching about how bad their people got it: nobody got it worse than the American Indian. Everyone...

    You're Full Of It!!! (and I'm Not Talking About Blood)

    I think a lot of people who claim to have Native blood are full of something other than what they claim (you know what!). The most popular is Cherokee. Funny thing is, most of these people don't know any of their families names!!! I get offended, but partially just have to laugh...

    Half-breed

    I am a mixed blood, but was only raised with one side. My father is white, my mother is Navajo and Cheyenne. I stopped talking to my father when I was 17, and never really knew his family. I know that they were of English descent, but that is it. I have two half-sisters...

    I wish I knew more of my heritage.

    I do not claim myself as Native American, that would be disrespectful since I haven't any proof. All I have aside from photos, family talks, and clairvoyance is that my grandparents on both sides had Native American (Choctaw and Cherokee) blood. Supposedly a branch of my family...

    I Am Native American

    IM MIXED WITH ALOT OF STUFF. AND IM PROUD OF ALL OF THEM. BUT THE THING THAT SHOCKS EVERYBODY THE MOST IS THAT I AM PART NATIVE AMERICAN. I HAVE NATIVE AMERICAN BLOOD IN ME AND HAVE ALWAYS BEEN INTERESTED IN LEARNING ABOUT THAT PART OF MY HERITAGE.

    When I was young, Raven,

    a close friend of my family took me under her wing. She is half Cherokee native, and taught me a lot about her culture and the ways of her people and the Earth. As I've grown older, I've adapted many of their beliefs into my own. Raven told me that I am what is called "and...

    It Ain'T All It'S Cracked Up To Be

    I'm full blooded Navajo. I know theres a lot of hooplah in being considered native. And I am content with who I am. But I don't think people understand the difficulties of being "native." Yes there's challenges with racism (towards us, towards white people) but living the...

    about life... "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy. "It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. "One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt...

    Why Is Everyone So Afraid Of Native Americans?

    A few people I've met on the astral plane have serious concerns about native Americans in the form of awkward feelings towards them. I'm only 1/16th Native American but it's obvious enough to any native whose family is 1/2 or 1/4 or more that I am also. If you have a scare about...

    Or at least, I think I am.

    My father didn't know what ethnicities he was, only that he was mixed, but he thought he was at least part native American. I wish I knew for sure what I was, but its too late now.

    I'm from the Apache tribe.
