Get your lineage together , birth and death certificates , prove your way back to a tribal member , send it in to the tribe. They will most likely welcome you with open arms ! Good luck and remember , finding your ndn side doesn't really change who you are , it only enhances it.
    Ther you go again...scaring off people.

I have been wondering for years, am I a fraud and should I stop claiming this? I'd love to hear your advice. Thank you.
