Question

Thank you for the compliments on my hair... a few years back my hair stylist disappeared, and well I haven't cut it since... heh.

colonah04 - I've seen that site... I think I've read the whole thing from front to back. And, you're right the bay area is expensive... but I've been here all my life, so it's home. And thank you for the Welcome.

QuickSilverWade - Okay I'll try not to not ask stupid questions... hehe... but I might not be able to help it... hehe... be nice... please... heh What is a QSW Question? I am sorry, I am not familar with the last name Veloz. I think I've seen it before but not sure where. Did you father live in California?Sorry... <img src="http://www.powwows.com/gathering/images/icons/icon9.gif">

AngelFeather - so how did you do it? How did you learn more?

Okay, so here are my questions of the day... How does one register with a tribe?

I decided to start looking into to books for to read to learn more... there are so many out there... how can you tell what is real and what is the New Age junk?

Rosie,
I heard that Mr. Veloz (I've never referred to him as my father since I've never laid eyes on him) was living in the Bay area during his living years but I've never had the inclination to make contact. But since you're Yaqui, I figured that there might be a one in a million chance that we're related, lol.

Defining a QSW question means that I'm trying to ruffle feathers and cause turmoil and chaos which is what my nature entails me to do, lol. I'm the instigator and behind the scenes troublemaker but I promise not to ruffle your feathers, okay?

Enrolling into a tribe may not be easy since you must have practically your entire family tree enrolled also at least in my case. I am at an advantage and so are the others who are enrolled because of our family connections. We can easily phone our cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents who reside on the reservation at any time. In your case and with such beautful hair, you wouldn't have any trouble making friends at the powwows. The Northern California area has numerous powwows practically every weekend so you shouldn't have any trouble making contact with the local native population.

The new age junk is out there in abundance. The rule of thumb is that one never talks about spiritual matters on the internet. There are so many rules regarding our protocol and etiquette that the best way to start is by reading the past threads on www.powwows.com . Also be aware of people using names that have "wolf" in them. Except of course the exceptional Southern Straight dancer "Ben Wolf!"

Hmmm I will have to look into Mr. Veloz... and you said he past in 1987. Do you know what city? You never know - we could be long lost cousin... heh. My grandmother was Lopez before marrying.

That's what I thought a QSW question was, but just wanted to make sure... lol. Okay good... and I will do my best not to ask stupid questions.

My uncle was in the process when he died... he said once he did he was going to help me... but it never happened... what is the difference of being registered or not? I don't understand. Someone told me it was just away for the goverment to track everything... of course he wasn't registered - and not by chose.

Agghhhh thank you. I wouldn't know where to start at a powwow... I would be nervous. I could see it now... my daughter and I holding hands... standing there like lost ducks, looking for our momma.

I've seen some around Northern California but not near enough for me to get too... not any yet.

I think that's a great idea, to start with old postings... I read a few before I posted... I think I need to go through I read a lot more. What is wrong with people using names that have WOLF in them?

I'm supposing that Mr. Veloz must've died in San Francisco leaving his wife Rachel Veloz.

By being registered with a tribe one can receive certain perks with the government. So, all I can say is that when somebody says that it is a way for the government to control us means they probably aren't registered. Oh, also during my dying last years I can go back home for free commodities.

Not all names with Wolf are wannabees but I like these last names better: Crazy Thunder, No Ear, Scabby Robe and Beautiful Bald Eagle.

About claiming to be related to you...
You aren't even kiddin AF, there is a woman on here that claims I am her long lost blood relative...She is a big time twinkie...She even made C question whether or not he had insulted me and I did not even know what was goin on. I learned a valuable lesson tho, I used to have my biz phone number on my emails like a sig. and The reason I met her was I was at poetry website and liked one of her poems, I wrote to her saying I like it and she got the phone number and has leached on to me every since...I took the phone number off...

live and learn aye....
