OLChemist gives wonderful book recommendations, I should know (still reading several recommendations!).

I think you might also enjoy Navajos Wear Nikes, by Jim Kristofic. It's written by a non-native and is set on the Navajo reservation, not the Plains, but still well worth reading.

LOL hey now... My mom always tells me that every gray hair you sprout gives you one more IQ point and that is why the older you are, the wiser you are.

Well, my brother told me we have an ancestor named Laughing Crow, or with the last name of Laughingcrow, but he doesn't know which. I just assumed that whoever that was, was our link to our tribe... my grandpa's last name is just "White"... Which is why I did not mention it before. Sort of seems to not be pointed in my favor lmao. I swear he is not white though. Black hair and dark skin, he is definitely not white. Maybe they changed their name to White because they wanted to be white, I don't know, I was told that down the line, when the takeover first happened, our family was one of the few who voluntarily assimilated into white culture without resistance... Cut their hair, went to church, the whole shabang. THAT part IS family lore, but it could be true, I am not sure. I am still trying to save up money to ask for birth/death certificates or other documents. I don't have a real job yet so it will probably take me a while.

You are fishing with a Hammer, splashing around.

If you use a net, you get more fish. Fish with a speargun, get one fish.

Sleuthing your background with a net brings in too many wrong fish.

Need to use facts to narrow down your fishing hole.

Start with yourself, work back in time based upon FACTS.

I have distant relatives that were blond Italians from the north.

Always thought they were Scots, or Scotsirish.

Turns out, when Great Great grandfather came through Ellis Island, it was common for the

Immigration Officers to change the names of immigrants to make them sound "More

American" the Italian name Ardelino was changed to Ardeline. Two generations later

nobody in the family knew the original name. Later, my own late father put together the

pieces of the puzzle.

Fishing and Puzzlin'
