Not trying to get off topic, but I guess issues can be complicated.
TRaditional Haudenosaunee way of determining your tribe and clan is through the mother only. You are what your mother is. Most of us have a blood quantum requirement but not the Seneca Nation of Indians (not to be confused with the Tonawanda Seneca or the Seneca Cayuga of OK). They just stick to the matrilineal descent which is .. if your mom is, then you are. But believe me, there's plenty of full blooded seneca among them.
