turns out I dont have much Native blood in me after all when I thought I did.

My Aunt has been doing research on our family tree and turns out I don't have much Native blood in me at all a little disappointed thinking I had more since I could walk and talk I always attended Pow-wows and just seems like I was more Native that's all.Turns out I am only 2% Native if that. My Great grandma was half Cherokee my dads fathers side of the family so wouldn't someone have to be full blooded also Choctaw is in us as well as the Cherokee.2% seems a little on the low side not much native ancestry to go on there.

Actually you would be a 1/32 or 3.125%
But that is just numbers, to be native its more than numbers its Lineage, culture and language. (Sorry Powwows don't count for the culture part those are just social gatherings).
To become a member (citizen) of a tribe you must meet enrollment criteria of that tribe. This varies from tribe to tribe some for instance use a Minimum Blood Quantum, still others use lineage or some combination there of.

The Cherokee consist of three different Federally Recognized Tribes, whose citizens have lineage to a base Roll and meet minimum blood quantum (if required)
Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma uses the Dawes Final Rolls 1907 (No Minimum Blood Requirement)
United Keetoowah Band uses the same roll and minimum of 1/4 degree
Eastern Band of Cherokees uses the Baker Roll of 1924 and 1/8 degree.

Those that can't meet this requirement fall into a category of not enrolled. They drift into Heritage groups or fall into those that would have them believe that they will some day become recognized as a Tribe and poof services and money will flow to them! Sorry no free lunch and actually the US Government in more recent times have a policy of Self Determination. Another words the days of huge amount of Federal Money (Laugh) are being replaced by the own tribes revenue streams such as gaming, live-stock, oil and gas and others. They have closed schools and hospitals while tribes have opened there own in the place of. Here in Oklahoma some tribes in the central part have opened Healthplexes that service those in rural areas not just tribal members but anyone. This is another untapped revenue stream in under served areas that larger Hospitals won't go.

Heritage is good to know and where we come from, but 3.125% is a small % compared to the other races you possess in you! All have equal importance, for we can't choose that we are born this way
