    If you look to the left of the thread, you will see the listings "Resources for Teachers, and one for Scouts. You can find more info there. Click on Forum Home, scroll down to General, and you will find sections on Ancestry and Genealogy and Native Issues. Native Issues also includes a recipe section. This forum also has a lot of videos of the different dances-all taken at different powwows.

    As for whackadoodles, yes, we have had our fair share over the years. LOL!
    Dear Subeeds,

    Thank you so much for your help. We've got plenty of those over here too :)

              Hi, I'm a girl from outback Australia that grew up thinking she was Spanish, Scottish and Asian.
              I never met my grandfather because he died before I was born but I saw plenty of photos and he clearly looked Asian as far as I could see.
              He didn't know what his ethnicity was but assumed Asian. After having many DNA tests to confirm I found out that I am part Native American and Inuit. Besides my Italian, Spanish and Scottish.

              I've matched up with many people who have Cherokee blood as well as Inuits. All of the people I match who have Cherokee blood are descendants of Fivekiller.

              I believe my Great grandmother Esther was in America before she came to Australia and she arrived here pregnant.

              It feels a bit surreal to find out I have Native American Ancestry. My mother and I have always been interested in Native American culture, jewellery, medicine, spirit religion etc. We both have always used natural medicine and have always been very spiritual. We are both Clairvoyant and have always wondered where it came from. I'm not sure if we have the same spirit guides but are very intune with nature and animals.

              My Grandfather was a farmer and butcher and my mother used to assist him in animal slaughter and skinning from when she was a child.

              A world away from where my Ancestor came from on the plains of America. I've always been drawn to Native American men in a big way, I had a long distance relationship with a Native American man I met online. He died before I got to meet him in person sadly.

              I've always had a longing to visit America and go to a reservation from when I was a little girl. I'm looking forward to experiencing Native culture and hospitality one day.

              Is it difficult to find a reservation to visit to experience Native culture? Will I be accepted as a part Native woman and be allowed to come to a Powwow? It would mean a lot to me to be accepted in this way.

              I'm don't want or need a piece of paper or a stamp to prove anything. I know I am Native, it's in my heart, and the blood that fills my veins. A certificate doesn't add anything to how I feel about being part Indian.

              I feel very privileged to say that I am part Native American and carry the spirits of my Ancestors.

              ✨✨
              Don't y'all have Mexicans 'n other Latin American peoples out there? We tend to possess significant Native American ancestry, especially around half like me so they should count as well and that's especially since many Amerinds in the US are mixed even without realizing it.

                You can see my photo on my profile pic. I'm more Inuit than Cherokee though. I've managed to find my Inuit family members through DNA tracking. I seem to be related to most Cherokee people from Tennessee and Indiana. We might be related! :0

                I don't have any fancy beadwork to boast. I only know how to cook every kind of meal under the sun, can grow almost every fruit and vegetable, and oh, yeah I used to be a masseuse.

                Other than that I'm hopeless with sewing so I'm no good for you.

                :p

                  I believe blood quantums are the governments way to breed us out of existance !


                  They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

                  There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

                  Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.
                  It's not me....I think you're an idiot !

                    It's ok...as long as we're not from the same county.

                                You're going to have to refer to me as Mr. Cherokee.

                                  I was raised in a dual religious household, meaning my grandmother taught me the Lakota spirituality AND the community we lived in pushed Catholicism at us in any way possible in an effort to recruit new members. Even at a young...

                                  I have a few questions and am looking for help. I am 54 and was adopted in 1961 as a baby. Due to my wife's pushing this along, my daughter did a DNA test on Ancentry.com. This pushed me to do the same. According to them I am 23 percent Native American. While my wife starts the procedure of checking...

                                  The truth is that it is not really funny. I am saddened by the extinction of many species and populations. The Great Spirit put all plants, insects, birds and animals on Mother Earth, because all have an important role to play in the grand scheme of life.
