  • side of the family.

    My paternal grandparents tried to teach me a little bit when I was a child. I was able to pick up a bit of the language and was given a couple of pieces of jewellery as heirlooms, but my father was quite abusive so I was taken away at a young age. He was in and out of jails for a few years and I quickly lost touch with that side of the family.

    A few years ago I moved to Australia and got in touch with an auntie through Facebook. My grandparents are getting older and may not be around much longer. I feel like I will be losing a really important part of my life, but I’m very anxious about getting in touch with that side of the family again because of what I experienced early in my life. It is also hard to get in contact with anyone because of the distance and time difference.

    I don’t want to lose what little I have learned of that part of me, but I also don’t feel as if I “belong” because I was raised by my white mother and feel culturally white. I would love to learn more of the language and be a part of something, but I don’t know how to start or if my dad’s side of the family would even be willing to help.

      Maybe he thought you'd give him a better answer !
      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 !

            I think I am off the hook, he left out the part of his father being Navajo this time around.

              Maybe because he feels dead inside.

                When you are dead you don't know that you are dead. It is difficult only for the others. It is the same when you are stupid.

                      that explains why he moved to Australia.

                        Hello everyone --

                        I am new to the forums so thank you for listening and your help.

                        I was raised in a mixed family with a white mother and Navajo father who moved with the family off of the reservation when he was in high school.

                        My name is Anastasia Benson and I'm hoping to learn more about my Native Ancestry from my great grandmother's side of the family and gain a level of connection with that heritage. I'm also hoping to better understand the world from the Native point of view and have hopes of accurately depicting Native...

                        Hi everyone.... I joined PowWows.com in 2009 and haven't been on since 2010 (at least not posting, I've done alot of reading) so I know most of you don't know me. And I know alot of people on here don't care to know what I have to say because I'm white, and that's ok.
