  • I am not a native, however, my father-in-law is, or perhaps, it would be better to say that he has Cherokee ancestors. I am not too clear on that issue. I have questions about it but am not sure whom to talk to about it. I hope that you find some wonderful friends here.

  • I'm sorry you've had bad experiences with some people here. We're not all that way! You can do a mom search to see if you can find members with commonalities with you. :o)

  • I have Cherokee and some other indian in me. I really look it too when I have my hair straightened. I am sorry for you if you have been experiencing problems with racism. Hurt people hurt people.

  • *hand up*

    Half black, half Indian.

    There's some other stuff mixed in there too but I just refer to myself as an exotic hybrid :D
