    you might have a tough time there as well.. there are I think 3 mohawk reserves...

    Akwasasne
    Tyendinaga
    Oka
    and then there are Many Mohawks on the Grand River (six nations) reservation.


    You might want to try going to some of the Mohawk and Iroquois boards and asking about the name in thier geneology threads. See if anyone knows those names.

    Uhm.. but I gotta ask.. if you are supposed to be mohawk or something, why you calling yourself LakotaJingle???

      Youre only 14 eh? I'll be nice. I don't have any info about your grandparents but good luck finding out what tribe they were from. After you check with the Mohawks and Menominee, you may wanna check the Cherokee tribal records. A lot of people have great grandparents who were Cherokee so I'd recommend looking there too.

      Before I go I have one question...
      If you were told you were Mohawk, and you were told you were Menominee, but you don't actually know what you might be... why is your screen name lakotajingledancer? Just curious.
