  • Nope...I wouldn't even try to get away with saying I was .05% Indian! :) Mostly Polish, Irish and Dutch over here!

  • I do have a little Cherokee, lol. I am not just saying that though, my grandmother was 1/2 Cherokee.

  • I am ...a little more than 5% LOL my Grandmother was raised on a rez here in upstate NY. Does 25% count ? (IDK?) :-)

  • My great grandma was full Cherokee. LOL

    But, no, I am not enough to claim anything really. Cherokee, Seminole and Chickasaw.

  • Nah, I'm one of those " I have some in me but not enough to make it obvious" and I never lived on a Rez. I'm a bit more than 5% Cherokee though.

  • I grew up thinking I was part. My family history on that side is very blurry and nobody knows much for sure. I moved to California when I was 11 and found out that the part of me I thought was Native American is actually Mexican lol. Native Mexican though, so for what it's worth I'm still part Native hehe.

  • No, as far as I know there isn't even 5% native american in me. lol! But my DH's mother was 50% something (I honestly don't know what type) so he would be 25% and my kids would then have about half of that... But nope, not me!

  • I have Native American blood in me. Very thin but it's there. I'm a descendant of Pocahontas. No joke. I actually looked up my family tree and it turns out my ancestor (Captain Bolling) married her grand daughter.

  • I know this is not what you were asking for but I do pride myself on my native American heritage. I am 1/8th Huron and Cherokee and I have the jaws to prove it.
