Question New here - Am I Native American?

Hi all! I'm new here. So I know this is a stretch, but I can't help my curiosity! I know my mom has a lot of Native American history, and my dad is from Germany. There was some fall-out though with my mother's side of the family and nobody will talk about it so I don't know details, but I want to know so badly!

Here's a photo of myself:

Do I look Native American? Is there any particular area of Native American's that I resemble? I think I look caucasion, but I am darker than most...and definitely more red. I dye my hair, but it's naturally a very ash dark brown. My eyes are "amber"...a gold color. I would love to research more info, but I don't even know where to start, so I haven't had much luck.

Thanks in advance for any help finding my heritage!

To answer your direct question; nope, you don't look ndn to me. You are very pretty though.

It's not a question of looks though. You're either native, or you're not. Subjective opinions on looks have very little to do with it and won't change your genetics.

No, you don't look native, but it doesn't mean you aren't. I would start with your family tree. Get as much information as possible. Do your research.
