Found my tribe and clan!!!

I am Cherokee. (Aniwaya/Wolf Clan)

Finally found my Native ancestors through traditional research!

As some of you say a lot, Cherokee seem to be a very well documented people!

Also, I know this isn't as important (or reliable) but my DNA test came back as 10% Native American!

So, you lost 90% of your DNA too?

Thumbs up

At least you're not one of those folks who claim Cherokee based on a typical legend about their great-great-great-great-great-...grandparent being some pure blood Cherokee prince/princess

But seriously, congratulations!

I wish this would occur more when it comes to post-columbian Native American cultures, such as Mexicans and most Latin Americans in general.
