Smile Jamie

Hello everyone my name is Jamie Gifford. I'm in Savannah georgia. I am not sure if I am half creek or Cherokee.my interest are featherwork and bead work.I love to learn new things. And in return I do give back.as I love and respect those who have come before me.one thing I feel sorry about is the way Americans have treated native Americans.there should not have been the trail of tears or any other events like that.that is my 2 cents. I love and respect you all.and I promise I'll treat you all like family.

if you do not know if you are half generokee or half creek how would you arrive at the assumption that you are half native at all? was it because of your ability to communicate with animals or just your high cheekbones?

The reason I know is because I have asked my mom about our haratige.that also the reason I also am not sure.my mom does not talk about it much. Therefore I am doing my own research..to reservh is to learn to learn is to respect to respect is to be thankful. To be thankful is to love. And to love is to learn. So I have learned about me and my haratige..but I still have along way as to go on my reserch.

Blood quanta math 101:

You don't get a 1/2 blood quantum with "a relative forme[sic] long ago married an indian" unless that relative was your mom. Each parent contributes 1/2 their "blood" to you. Unless you've been in a closed adoption, it is damn near impossible to be "half Indian" without knowing what tribe.

[Irony font begin]You don't get to join the mixed-blood angst club unless you can do fractions. Not so fun to be an Indian when there's going to be arithmetic test.[/Irony font end]

[Irony font begin]I'm feeling the urge to take my bow and arrows, trot down to Walmart and shoot me some grub. And after dinner we can get out my Garmin and go tracking. Please.[/Irony font end]


I have two nieces and a nephew, with phenotypes as varied as Medelev's peas. We've already had to have the "football fans in war paint and feather' and the Pochahottie talks. I dread seeing the look in their eyes as they face being judged against the dominant culture's twisted "Indian" ruler. A ruler that gets a little longer and more bent, with each stereotype laden performance of another self-proclaimed, know-nothing Indian. It is so damaging to a Native child's developing identity to have non-Indians judge them to be inauthentic.

You claim a connection with the Cherokee or Creek, then show your relatives some respect. Learn who your people really are. Keep a humble heart, open ears and a closed mouth. Learn your people's ways. Not some weird new-age mixture. Be real.


Ok, rant over. Please Jamie learn from this. It will save you from some harsh lessons I see coming your way.
