When seeking to reconnect with a tribal heritage it is necessary to start with family. Family determines your place within Native communities and in many ways defines your role and responsibilities.

Except in the case of adoption, it is rare to hit a total lack of official records. Starting with your birth certificate, trace backwards through the generations. Native people in the USA are very well documented. It is nearly impossible for an Native person to obliterate their paper trail. You will eventually hit kin.
