Wild isn't it. On the other end of the spectrum I read something about the Seneca of New York that says your mother has to be in the tribe for you to be a member. It was written by a full blood man that married a white woman and his 1/2 blood children could not register. I'm not sure if it is true or not. Not trying to get off topic, but I guess issues can be complicated.
