Hello.  I am not native American but my daughter, my husband and his family are.  I wanted to be a member of this group so I could better understand the culture and help my daughter with the culture.  Now I do have one question.  I was always made fun of as a kid so i am really worried about that happening to her.  Is she going to be made fun of for having a native father and a white mother? She also has blue eyes how is that going to fly?  I am really worried about her please help.

Osiyo and thanks so much for your warm welcome. It's wonderful to find such welcoming friends! I am Cherokee/French decent. I am married to a wonderful man who is Black/White and we have a 17 yr old son who is my life. I try to live in harmony with everyone and keep my feet close to Mother Earth. I cook traditional foods (for both Black and Native tastes), and am a traditional wife and mother. I work part time as a substitute high school teacher. I am proud of my heritage and try to pass on that pride of culture to our son as well. Wado, Becky

HI, I just joined and saw your post and had to reply.  I am mixed Cherokee and French, married to a mixed race Black/white man.  Our son is, of course, mixed also, being black/white/cheokee/french.  What most people see when they look at him, however is just a young black man, perhaps of mixed parentage.  To tell the truth, I have had more troulble with ignorant people than our son.  They look at me and just see a white woman who betrayed her race by marrying a black man and having a mxied child.  \

I don't let it bother me because it is their ignorance and I am a big girl and can handle it.  The kids my son hangs around could care less, he's just who he is to them.,  I have tried to raise my son with pride for who he is, and all the different cultures his blood represents.  I have always raised him to think for himself and to have confidence in himself, that he can do anything he puts his mind to and be whatever he chooses to be, and that he is capable of very great things.

As a result, he is a very confident, capable and mature young man who knows who he is and is comfortable in all worlds- black, white, Native. If you teacher your daughter to value and treasure who she is inside, encourage her to develop her talents and abilities and follow her heart, she will be strong and independent and able to deal with the few ignorant people she meets in life.  Those who love her won't care what color her skin or eyes are, and those who don't- well, why would she care what they think?

Being native is not so much a think of blood or color of  skin but a state of the spirit. It is about walking the path of a true human being and realizing that you are just one among the Earth's many children.

Hi! I am glad to be a part of this group and I look forward to reading and sharing many wonderful journeys with all of you.  I am a mother of three and soon to be a step mother to three more blessings.  My natural children are Creek/Seminole and Cherokee. My soon to be step-children are caucasian. I am originally from Oklahoma and I now live in the St Louis area.  I am finalizing plans for my wedding in May and I am concerned with the transition our six children will face as we blend our not only our names, but our traditions and culture.  Any words of wisdom for our blended family are welcomed.
