    Thank you. I'm sorry about your mother, she sounds like a kind woman. My father wanted the "white" life. When I became interested in Native culture, he was really hesitant and wouldn't answer me. He told me it was best to leave it. If I wanted to learn, I could do it from a distance. My father was insulted as a redskin growing up. It sucks too because his family never really accepted him. He never felt like he belonged. All of his friends were mixed-bloods who weren't accepted. I don't mention I'm Native when heritage is brought up anymore. I'm deleting my account. I came to learn about a culture that is supposed to promote tolerance and acceptance, but that seems to be the opposite now. On the internet, it seems Native Pride is really dead. I'll take my dad's word and just find out these things for myself. It's hard though, there aren't many books or accurate documents. Most of them only cover basic living like how they hunted, not the individual tribes or their rituals.

    I read your status, I am begining to feel the same way. I have done nothing but be polite and post my way of life that was taught to me but because I am part white....I get the damn red beads and sarcastic comments from the same people that give you hell. Just learn and be what is in your heart. My mother taught me as much as she could, she passed at age 39 and I was young so alot I had to learn on my own, because my mothers sister and brothers was not at all please to know they were mixed bloods and choose to life the white way. What they don't realize alot they think is the white way, comes from the Cherokee that their father,mother,grandmother and grandfather taught them.
