                  I am 1/512 Dutch. I know in my heart that this is so. When I see windmills, my heart soars. I purchased a pair of wooden shoes at a yard sale. I had to have them. When I put them on visions of tulips surround me. The story of the child who plugged a hole in the dyke turned me to tears.

                  I tell people of my lost heritage but they take one look at me and say, "No way man! You're Anishinaabe all the way!" What can I do?



                  I first submitted a post similar to this a few years ago and my situation has not changed. I tried to join a Dutch-Canadian club with no success. My skin color has been a detriment to my being accepted. My Ojibwe accent is unmistakeable and is hard to disguise.

                  Would a trip to the homeland help me out? I don't know if I should chance it as ( I heard) there are drug cafes and the sex trade is blatantly displayed in windows. Is that bad? I want so much to learn and partake of my Dutch heritage in every aspect.
                  Hey I found a Dutch cpl that said they would adopt you, of course it will cost a few hundred (due to the paperwork lol) but then i'd expect you'll be wanting to know all our secret ceremonies and handshakes. lmao u all are too funny :)

                      Wannabe that doesn't like Wannabe's

                      I should know better than to get in on this thread, but…
                      I fit under the “great grandma was an Indian” category, but also dislike the wannabe’s at powwow’s. The vendors and dancers with their hair dyed black are annoying for sure. Living in the east we have a lot more assimilated people than bloods, so it is the norm around here. I have very little problem because I look a little Indian. The point of my post is about my son.

                      I have made a very interesting observation with my second son. Genetics are a mystery and although he is only about 1/64 native, he arrived with really dark hair and skin. It’s a good thing he looks just like me otherwise! Lol. When we go to powwow’s he is treated better because he looks Indian. He fits in with the bloods and has a different experience than his siblings. We vacationed in Cherokee, NC and tourists were taking his picture. At South Dakota powwows he has been mistaken for a blood by the other kids. It is too bad that a native’s “indianness” is judged by looks, but that is reality. So is my boy happy with the way he looks, no not always. At school he is asked “what are you”, “why is your skin so dark”, etc. etc.. He is the least interested in his Indian heritage out of all of my kids and won’t participate at powwows. I hope it all comes into focus after he gets older.

                      I dance because I like it and to honor my grandfather. He was beaten by his mother when he asked questions about being Indian and was forbidden to mention it. He was proud of it all the same. My great-grandmother knew it had taken a lot of years for my family to get white and lose the prejudice, but things were different in 1900(maybe). The Keating Mt. Cherokee came to PA during the French and Indian war and assimilated by the early 1800’s. My family is the only one left that honors them. So maybe some of my motivation is spite, I feel like I am screwing all of those people that tried to wipe out the Indians just by honoring my ancestors!

                      Some of my personal rules:
                      I buy my stuff only from registered natives (although I suspect fraud exists).
                      I never claim to be an Indian. I am a white man with Indian heritage. (I have visited a lot of rez’s- That is not how I had to grow up).
                      I don’t dance at big tribal powwows. (They are a family event, and I just visit and support).
                      When my picture gets in the local papers I use my real name not White hawk (I try not to be mistaken as a “real” Indian)

                      As bad as the wannabe cultural can be, I am more irritated by the new age hippy dope smokers who “find” enlightenment thru Indian spirituality. No offense to anyone for any reason. For me it’s all about the dancing.

                              Where da heck you guys been? Have you never been on the rez? There are Indians who are priests, ministers, nuns. I see them when I go to funerals of friends. Not everybody attends tradish ceremonies. You got the wrong idea that all Indian people who live on the rez are tradish. Not so. Make a trip sometime. You might learn something.

                              Ya'll make jokes of something you have never experienced.

                              I'm not so fond of wannabes myself, but they're here, there, everywhere. I keep my distance and they better keep theirs.
