I get so sick of people saying that if you are not full blooded then you are not NDN. I am 3/4 Native american and I Don't have black hair and brown eyes but my brother does. People have told me that I am not an NDN because I don't look like one and also because I am not 100% and don't live on the rez. That is very hurtful to say. Why do some people think that?

ME
This morning I looked in the mirror,
I stared intensely at what I saw,
Trying to figure out if it was
My eyes, my nose or my jaw.
Maybe it's my ears, I thought,
or maybe it's my chin,
I'm sure that I will figure out
what is my "part' that is Indian.
Maybe it's my arms or hands
or some little internal gland,
I sure hope I can soon find out
what "part" is Indian.
You see to some that means a lot
to them it's a big deal,
So maybe it's my knees or toes
or maybe my left heel.
But, you see, I don't understand
what this "part" stuff means,
Because in my heart I know
just who and what I be.
That from the top of my Choctaw head,
to the tip of my Choctaw toes,
With every beat of my Choctaw heart
Every fiber of me knows
That it is not the "degree of blood"
That makes me what I be.
It is the spirit of Choctaw
that dwells within, you see.
So with every breath I take
and in complete awe
I know with every breath I take
that I am Choctaw!
