I'm glad to see you already know tribal identity is key, and that there is no generic Native American. This is a good start. Many who come here do not seem to be aware of even this.

SNP's do not an Indian make. There is no genetic memory. Native identity -- like all human cultural associations -- is created within the framework of kin and community. It grows on language, geography, spirituality and shared history. It is learned not inborn.

I say this not to shut you out, but to give hope. Once you do the leg work and find your kin, if you approach with a humble heart and a spirit of service you can learn.

LOL. You make it sound like you just learned the secret handshake and now you want the decoder ring. Friendly teasing aside, what do you want to know?
