well my opinion again... it's sad ....go ahead and let them wannabe's take ove and the FAKES AND FRAUDS, eventually its gonna be that way...Cultural Integritity will be ruined.....we need to fight for all the rights of our sovereign nations not just one or two... Over looking fake and frauds will only undermind our plight as much as any other issue concerning native americans

Excuse me folks. If you haven't noticed, this is an extremely long thread. There are some very good posts here and some good info..... but the average person whom you are trying to reach with this message will not read through hundreds of posts to get to that one particular article that may change their thinking. Like the one on the previous page. Good article...... but will many see it?

This is a worthwhile topic that certainly needs addressing and I think should continue.
Might I suggest that someone start another thread entitled, " How white is your Native World - #2"?

I tell people of my lost heritage but they take one look at me and say, "No way man! You're Anishinaabe all the way!" What can I do?



I first submitted a post similar to this a few years ago and my situation has not changed. I tried to join a Dutch-Canadian club with no success. My skin color has been a detriment to my being accepted. My Ojibwe accent is unmistakeable and is hard to disguise.

Would a trip to the homeland help me out? I don't know if I should chance it as ( I heard) there are drug cafes and the sex trade is blatantly displayed in windows. Is that bad? I want so much to learn and partake of my Dutch heritage in every aspect.
i know better but i just couldnt stop from injoying this thread
well you know me 2lines nothen shy about that. i just wish you were dutch lol too but it is funny looking at it from your eyes,al the same to you im keeping every part giving to me
and where are these ppl now dang thier good

Well I guess I made my comments on the wrong thread the other day. O.K. I'm half Irish and half Souix and never got to know neather one of my parents. My mother whom was Souix I don't know which tribal band from Wisconsin, died when I was very young and my father whom was a CPA in Chicago (Irish) married another woman after my mother passed and "gave me" to another family to raise. This never bothered me until about nine years ago. Now that my career and raised children are finished its important to know these things.

It didn't take me long at all to find my father side. I have three brothers I didn't know I had.

Now finging my mother's grave has been very difficult. I still don't know where her grave is or if I have relatives. I would like to know more about her. Not because she is Native American Souix Indian....just the fact that she is and was my mother.

Finding my father didn't cost me a nicel with no effort. Finding my mother has cost me thousands and thousands of dollars. I'm still searching for her but that dose not mean that I am a want to be indian or have a identity crisis. It just means that I can get on with my life. I will not invade any ones heritage.

First of all man... take most of these posts with a grain of salt because they are intended to be humerous.. indians are the biggest teasers on the planet and you gotta have a thick skin to appreciate it LOL!

Second, if your mom was from one of the indian nations in Wisconsin, it would'nt be Sioux. I might not have all of these right but there is the Onieda, the Ojibway and I think the Hochunk and Menominee as well. If she is Lakota (sioux) they are residing in South Dakota. This might be where you are getting lost because either you are looking in the wrong place or looking for the wrong Nation.
Second of all, do you have her name? If not can you get her name from your dad's side of the family? How about off your birth certificate?
Third, do you know what city she died in and her death date?
And finally.. if you are half and want to know more about that heritage, it's yours.. it's not an identity crises. You're entitled to know more about it. Don't jump the gun here thinking that just because you read this thread that you necessarily fall into the "make fun of the wannabes" catagory ok?

I know we are teasers, believe me, I've gotten myself into trouble many times for it. lol This is another reason I need to find out who my mother is.
All my findings are from the grilling I did with family members involved. Guilt is a funny thing and you have to weed it out whats true and whats false. I do have some ground breaking evidence that she did exist. I can not reveal all my facts because it is under investigation at my expence as we speak. I'm real close to finding out who she is at this time. Pow Wow Gatherin is my crutch this is not an easy task, trust me. When I find her I can eather hug trees or PWG. Thank you for your post, hope you find my post when I do got all the facts about her. It will be a happy day for me.

I think after I find out all I need to know about my cultural background I'm going to go on a Caribbean cruise.

LOL

Tribal integrity lost ? LOL... Most tribes have already lost their integrity by becoming wanna-be Lakotas during the Pan-Indian epidemic !

And the Lakotas have lost their integrity by letting their youth becoming wanna-be gangsters...

LOL... When most native people think that the peak of nativeness is the bling you put on your powwow (read : rodeo) regalia, then you can't speak of integrity anymore.

But-- what do I know... I'm a fake medicine man living in a white world.

A Ho ! (Wait.. I'm not Lakota.. should I be saying that?)
