Learn who they really are. Look, if you're of Native descent then you already have kinship connections to a tribe. Why do you need a new made up one?

I've had a few close encounters with a few of these "descendency" groups. Most of the people in them seem like sincere folks. But they are very lost folks. They cobble together a little Cherokee, a little Lakota, a little New-Age, and a lot of Hollyweird to make symbols and rituals to satisfy the needs of their invented tribes. They grow their hair in braids, drape themselves with turquoise and dead animal teeth, carry fur wrapped pipes, and in their sincere attempts to fill the hole in their soul they commit sacrilege. And their antics cut them off from having a real identity as a mixed-blood person.

You are right a Metis Nation is the USA would number in the millions--and they would be authentic with a few frauds.

My ggrandmother-lost property, the kids were court ordered sent away and was sometimes referred to as Colored and sometimes Indian, sometimes simply not listed at all. Like so many people of that era and families.

Please quit labeling people who have already been marginalized for generations as 'wannabe'. It shows a profound lack of knowledge about historical events.

I don't wanna be Cherokee, and I am not and I do not claim it.

I am mixed and that is the truth weather you approve or not. I deal with race crap every day of my life due to my phenotype. So don't even play with me.

Mixed race people exist, and have for centuries--and we will survive.

Peace.

You sound pretty defensive. Do you think you are the only one who deals with the 'race crap'? I, and many others, have seen it firsthand...every day. Save the pity card for someone else. 'Colored'? Pffft.

You need to find out who you family is.

If your ancestors didn't meet the Mayflower from the shore, you're complaining to the wrong people.

If some of them did, but your family has ever -- once -- used mixed blood to "pass" as an ethnicity where things weren't so difficult? Then you've already broken the faith.

Either way, you not only sound defensive but reek of paper tiger.

Paper tiger is a literal English translation of the Chinese phrase zhǐ lǎohǔ (simplified Chinese: 纸老虎; traditional Chinese: 紙老虎), meaning something that seems as threatening as a tiger, but is really harmless. This Chinese colloquialism is similar to the English phrase "its bark is worse than its bite".
