  • A real Indian with a real Indian name!

    By Arigon Starr
    News From Indian Country

    What is a “Real Indian” anyway?

    There are as many kinds of “Real Indians” as there are tribes.

    Most folks seem to agree that a “Real Indian” knows where they’re from and who their people are. A tribal enrollment card is a good indicator, but since plenty of tribes don’t have state or federal recognition it’s not the only criteria. Are you a Pow-Wow or a Conference Indian? Perhaps you are Traditional, know your language, or work at the tribal health clinic or casino? Maybe you’re a scholar, a businessperson, a writer or play for the Boston Red Sox like Jacoby Ellsbury or like Oklahoma Sooner quarterback Sam Bradford?

Join the online community forum celebrating Native American Culture, Pow Wows, tribes, music, art, and history.
