A little bit more about me for those who are interested.....

I, as quite a few here know, am mixed blood, but I never really came clean about the nation. That is simply for the fact that I didn't want people to judge me before they knew me. well, now I feel that I have a somewhat good basis here with you guys, so here it goes. I am of the Ani'Yunwiya (Cherokee). My documented ancestors married into the whites in the early 1830s just before the removal of the Cherokee through the trail of tears in 1838. Now, that only gives me 1/32 of "real" Cherokee blood. I say "real" because I also have 2/32 blood from my dad's side, but it is undocumented; and well, some people just don't believe the family stories simply because they refer back to the Cherokee nation. The rest is mostly Irish with a little bit of german mixed in there. And there it is, folks! You all officially know the true me! Hopefully nobody labels me a "Pretendian" due to low blood. But one thing I was tought by a full blood Lakota, you are native, or you aren't. There is no middle. I know who I am, as well as the ways of my people, and nobody can change that! Hopefully everyone still accepts me, but If not, Eh. I've been hurt worse! Friends?

I'll have to check that out. Our irish is mostly made up of Stanley or McNabb. But that'd be pretty cool!

What is Ani'Yunwiya? Never heard that before, but then again, I'm not Tsalagi.

[QUOTE=ac_miss;1592401]What is Ani'Yunwiya?QUOTE]

There's quite a few different ways to spell it, but it is a traditional name for the Cherokee from before colonization when "Cherokee" became the norm. It's directly translated to the "Principle people"
