OK, OK Singerdad, My apologies. I'm Cherokee. Hubby (Gray Bear) is Cherokee and Choctaw. I was not raised in my heritage (and I'm not full blood) and I am learning. (at least trying to learn) If I am wrong, someone who has the knowledge please tell me the right way.

Wouldn't it be logical...if you are Cherokee, and you live in East Tennessee, to head over to the Cherokee rez to find out about your heritage? Seems it would be more beneficial than trying to find it online.

Note: I am not trying to answer for Singerdad.

I do think french braids look pretty I can braid my daughters like that but not mine. BTW... I wear 2 braids even though I'm married...the braid thing doesn't bother me as much as the idea of spraypainted hair does.

It's funny how I found that. I was looking for a picture of "Runaround" hair to show WhoMe, since he asked how they wear their hair. I googled "Bad Hair Day" and the first picture up was that doot on trial for killing his snag! Immediately I thought, "WhoMe's afro!"

I gotta know because there are a few men who have just become single here on Powwow.com!

I just want to express the corn rolls and six braids and spray painted hair is carried away. I think california is a very urban area mostly with the lastest trends of urban areas. And the native public of the area should be happy that there is a pow wow there to help and educate the of various native cultures and dances. It sounds like they are trying to mix the two.
