I am interested. I have been told all my life that we are of Cherokee heritage and I was taught much about Cherokee from grandmother. But my family lived in mountains and did not walk the Trail of Tears. During my genealogy search I found our family listed as white and even Phillipine, etc. I go by the Cherokee ways but I guess I am Metis since I know we are mixed bloods. My family is from the Applicians. Mountain dwellers. My grandmother and her mother and my mother all look cherokee and I do some as well. My father was schottish so I have light skin. Mother had dark skin as did hers. Black Hair and Brown eyes, she had. I traced family back to Daniel Hensley 1790. No proof but what came from my great grandmother and census pages.
