But the vast majority do
All tribes is Heritage groups including the Federal tribes.

And every heritage group has a right to seek their recognigtion.

You should actually be proud to see more native americans seeking to get recognigtion or to represent who they are.


How can people who all are documented descendants of a tribe and wish to be recognized as such and try to show their pride be a issue to a real native american?

Your supposed to encourage this not work against that.

These should not even be called heritage groups...thats actually disrespectful, since they are all descendants and heirs to the tribe they claim.

The only issue should be if they are not documented to the tribe they claim. The most annoying thing is when people claim a tribe and then they get mad if you simply ask how they descend from that tribe and refuse to answer.
