adoption

how are people adopted? my cousin was adopted by (i think) a southern otoe tribe and they never said why. i think it would be nice to be adopted because i like to learn other peoples cultures. anyone?

sun,

I have seen a lot of traditional adoptions in the Southern Plains. Most were at tribal dance grounds.

In these adoptions, there is a public display of "dressing the adoptee" in new tribal clothing from bottom-to-top.

This public acknowledgement serves as a notice to the entire tribe that this adoptee is now considered a family member. Afterwhich, a big give away takes place.

*In most circumstances the adoptee is recognized as a member of the adopting family or individual ... not the tribe.

I'm adopted. My birth mother is Native American (we don't know anything about the father), and I was adopted into a white family.

sun,

I grew up with a cousin from Oklahoma who I thought was part Japanese for the longest time. He also did the southern walk and bowed.

Perhaps he can meet your cousin and they can do the southern walk and bow together?

Seriously. My cousin's nickname was Charley Chan. I called him that until high school when I found out his real name is George.

To tell you the truth, I don't think he would go for anybody who wears deer bone necklaces. So I respectfully withdraw the invitation to walk southern style and bow with yur' cousin.
