I Need Help.

When I was born, my mother marked "caucasian" or however you spell it, on my birth certificate. However, my father is 50% native american, 50% irish. My grandmother on his side was full blooded Cherokee. My mother is also 50/50, and her grandfather was actually raised on a Native American plantation. Now that I'm almost 18 and going off to college, I want to embrace my culture, but I also need desperate help to pay for it. I know that you get amazing benefits for being Native American, and since I have to pay for all of this on my own it would help out soooo much if I could get my true ethnicity onto my records. Does anyone know how it's possible to do this?
