P.S. I couldn't agree with you more sixsapaha, Str8Dancer49 and powwowbum49.
You're right Stands,

DNA can tell you that you have blood matching natives, but it cannot tell you what tribe you are.

I'm not sure about your statement that an anthropologist can determine what ancestral tribe you are.

For instance, there is not an antropologist alive that can tell somebody they are definitely "Cherokee/Blackfoot."



I do know that it is the tribe's themselves that determine who is in their membership... and who is not.
