Thanks for the italics! I had to read and re-read this.

Very deep! Of course we come from our parents, and can't help but being a blend of what they are. But we are our own person. I'm sure not a white guy from Ohio. But I identify with my mom - a native lady from WYO.

As much as I want to go be a native Hawaiian girl, I could try, but the genes just aren't there. Although as my hair's getting longer it's looking a little Hawaiian!

Hi LittleWolf!!

Well, I think your signature says it well.
It was just a question that us simple human beings may not have an answer for.
Have a nice day.

I want to honor my grandmother. I try to do that by living in balance on this earth. I do not dress silly at pow wows and I am always respectful (as far as I know!).

My grandmother's heritage was always hidden publicly (white man's shame) but the story was passed down by the women in my family. I don't want my grandmother to be hidden in shadow any longer, so i tell people I have an Indian great great grandmother who I am proud of.

Does that make me a wannabe?
What tribe was your grandmother? Has your family taught you any of her tribes traditions? Sounds as if you should go to that tribes website if you are looking for knowledge.

lolol it kinda funny. we found out the name of my husbands real grandfather recently, what tribe he was enrolled in etc. Now, he was not in his daughters life at all. So we decided to NOT go up to his family members and say oh by the way....hi cousin lolololol. If it is meant to happen, it will. If not well....

2carralinemorgan and any others who did not understand my post:

What I'm saying is it bothers me because it's a term that's too easily used by dishonest people without actually having to be dishonest but rather misleading. Heck I could go to any ethnic forum right now and call myself a mixed blood. If I was in an african american forum or asian forum and said I was a mixed blood with opinions... am I lying? No cause I am half and half... but am I half Af. Am. or half Asian? No.. but it would sure sound like that was my claim would'nt it?

So in this case.. this thunderhands guy could tell anyone he is a mixed blood but it does'nt necessarily mean he's got a drop in native blood in his ancestry. And there are many other online "wannabes" I've run into who call themselves mixed bloods... Hence the reason I said code for unknown or little ancestry.

Like I've said before about my comments... unless you fit the description, there is no need to be offended.

glad to hear from you black bear im sure your busy lately,thank you for explaining what you were talking about in your post awhile back, also your post brough up some intersting comment from some other ppl here at powwows.com

my comment to your post was about ppl that are mix blood and i did not take offence but i wonder if your not gunning a little.
be that it may, its your feeling and how you feel about this topic.im no poster child either way.

and ppl like thunder what ever his name was here or there i think we can all see them a mile way.anyone who sells somthing under a title that thay have no right to or even just sells somthing Holy for personal gain is a problem to whom ever thay come in to contack with wither or not thay are aware of it them selfs.

i found your pyer post helpfull in how i difined myself ,and have taken your words to heart.

But still Im suffling papers looking for the title to belong lol but im finding that i do belong and in goot hearts im welcomed as i grow ,i loved powwow this year and im glad for this fourm yall are opening my eyes all the time.

i dont like to judge ppl but some good common sense goes a long way.and maybe i might not make some of the same mistakes that have been made befor.

your strong words have been hard to hear at times but always clairity follows.
any time black bear your words are welcomed.

I know, BB. What the heck does MIXED BLOOD mean? I saw someone's profile saying he's Mixed Blood, but it was like 3 tribes mixed together. Sometime's I say I'm "mixed" but then try to qualify it with either half white and half Shoshone (the simplified version) or E. Shoshone, Kootenai, Pend'Orielle, Blackfeet, Sioux, Iroquois, Swampy Cree, French, Danish, German, Scotch and Irish.

I do think most people around here parts say "mixed" and mean mostly white with a tiny bit of NDN, which is really "thin-blood".

Is that the definition of mixed blood wyo.. or would the description.. indian chex mix work better? ROFLMAO!!

Yeah I think most of us have more than one tribe in us just because we don't know who was captured or adopted before we started keeping records of these things.... it's always been you are the nation you are a part of. But we tend to treat it more seriously now because of the decline of culture among the tribes and the efforts to preserve it. Made everything messy for self definition these days.

But these "mixed blood"/"thin blood" types ... I'm just getting to where I'm tired of hearing the whining about how hard it is. As I was just telling someone, "you know... don't care if they can prove it or not if they just did'nt keep looking for this sympathy factor... it's like, accept yourself and then I can accept you... I don't want to feel sorry for you."

Until they prove differently or do something that sends up red flags... I'm willing to accept people in a friendly way regardless what they claim or how much of it. Just be honest if it's brought up.

If you were'nt raised with it and you only know of one ancestor that was known for being indian... just say it. You don't have to impress me with your knowledge or dancing skills and I'd rather celebrate with you as you learn and discover than someone just sounding out a bunch of stuff they read like they've known it all their lives but still recite it cause they really read it from a book.

And don't think just because you have this one relative that was indian that you have to suddenly become one too... I mean I'm not faulting anyone who is curious and wants to know more... and maybe even participate in cultural activity, cause we ARE exciting and beautiful peoples... but you're not dishonoring anyone by just being who you are, as long as you're honest and living in good way.

But becomeing these so called psychics, healers and chiefs in their own minds types... that just shows that they don't really feel they need to honor their ancestors... but rather they dream of being someone important and powerful and respected because they can't respect themselves as they are. And if that's not the reason, then it always comes down to money.

Good post, Blackbear. I myself am not a know-it-all mixed blood, I am a don't-know-much-of-anything-and-am-still-learning white person with a dribble of Mohawk ancestry, basically raised in no culture of any sort. White people with a Cherokee princess six generations back who claim to know more than somebody raised in the culture drive me nuts too. What's wrong with being who you really are?

Just don't say Heinz 57, BB. But good post! Everyone needs to accept all races and nationalities, and begin with themselves.

But if I hear "mixed" one more time, I'm gonna scream! jks If you're gonna say mixed, say mixed with with what.
