    many paws.
    Dang, Lady Chatterly, why do you call me an idiot? Is it because I said you will always be white and NEVER be Indigenous to this land? You can call me an idiot, but you can't call me a liar!

    Long Branch...hmmm? I've heard of Long Branch. Is that the Long Branch on Highway 72 surrounded by Bladenboro to the east, Lumberton to the north, Fairmont to the west and Orrum to the south?


    I should got to a powwow so I can start catching up to your ONE!

    Dude...you elevator doesn't go to the top floor.

Even when they claimed Native linage, they found princesses, chiefs, and medicine men.
        I definitely will move it up on my reading list. That phenomenon has puzzled me for some time.

        For such a republican (not meaning GOP) country, we are absolutely wild about royalty. In fact, Obama is the first president that I can remember that shortly after the election there weren't newspaper articles reporting how the new president-elect was related to the Windsors.

        You gotta go back pretty far before you find anyone of note in my family. I have the Younger Brothers on my Mom's side, though. Plenty of thievin' going on there!

              Now I'm making myself hungry!
              In Sweden we call it Blood Pudding and it is fried in a frypan served with lingonberrie jam....soooooo yummie....you gotta try that... you can find lingonberrie jam at Central Market or IKEA

              • Whether your ancestors were Plantagenets, Jack the ripper, Richard the lion Heart, or the town drunk is of little consequence. It's what YOU are as a person that matters. How can anybody be any race other than by blood?
                But that noted prophet JD is correct, it always comes down to food, eh what?

                  Unless you're Scottish... *shudder* Then you figure out how to escape without touching any of it I think most Scottish food was based on a dare. Haggis is all the proof you need xD

                  • Black pudding -- OK I'm a food bigot. My hair is standing on end over this one. Sunktaki no offense, but I won't be serving that at our next beading group luncheon. Now the lingon berry jam is another matter. Swedish wojapi, LOL.

                    Corvid be nice to Scottish food. Inky pinky and neeps and tatties, yummy.

                    • Scratching my head...and feel like a blonde...because isn't all Swedish women tall blue eyed with blond hair with big meatballs....ooh darn it... then that means that I can't be Swedish...ooh that's right... I am Sami...and how much bleach and contact lenses I have tried, I still can't become 5' tall..not even the miracle grow worked...darn it...

                      Many Paws...you state on your profile:
                      "I just went to my first Pow wow as I am a new Cherokee to the Nation"
                      "Tribal Affiliation
                      Cherokee "

                      No offense...but who of your Brittish ancestors are on any of the "Rolls", as that is required to be enrolled as a member of the Cherokee Nation.
                      Eastern/Western doesn't matter...
                      Beside, both Nations have come to an agrement to take legal actions against groups/people, that claim to be Cherokee, without proof.

                      You.... are just like me, an immigrant to this country, that is where it ends...I do not claim to be something I am not...so the major difference is...I am Sami, indigenious to my country, just as my brothers and sisters, The Native Americans/First Nations are to this country and Canada. You portaits yourself as something you are not, i.e. Native American...shame on you....no matter how many adoptions you have, you will still be from England, and no matter how much sun tan, or spray paint used, when you look at yourself in the mirror, you will still be the immigrant from England, nothing can ever change that.

                        Yep! Rare steak - no steak sauce, just whatever seasoning was used in cooking, and some sauteed mushrooms on the side. Anyone else put butter on their steaks? Mmmmm, good eatin'!

                        I haven't had lingonberry jam in years! That does sound good. I never thought to eat blood sausage with jam. That would be a good combination. I think I just found 2 more additions to my grocery list this weekend!

                          G&B, Two Leggings is just an area outside of Crow Agency where the 49's USED to be held at Crow Fair. It's pretty much locked down now during the powwow.

                          So have you eaten any crumpets lately?

                                  I have a question: Is it right for white people to come in and celebrate traditional gatherings, I mean like to have a Powwow filled with ONLY white people like selling Native stuff and imitating Natives? I'm not trying to sound racist but is it okay for a white person to become head dancer in a Native...

                                  After spending 11 yrs with the Native Community I returned home to Sweden only to find that there's lots of European "Pow Wows" goin' on in England, Germany, Poland etc. After the initial "Whaaaaaat??" I started snooping around on...

                                  Forget I even asked, some people here seem to have such attitudes when asking about how to practice Native American spirituality. Why ask? Because one GENERALLY does not know. I wasn't being racist or racially bias, I was telling of the experience I came upon, upon hearing from a group called Hebrew...
