    I think what AC MISS meant by Indian Country is wherever Indians are populated. That's how I see it. Care to take a stab, anyone??

    I think I would have to agree with ONEIDAGIRL2003. When it happens it just happens.

    In Indian country you say. But what about those of us in the city areas? I've been meeting alot of people of mixed tribes here in the city and the difference between us and those I met on the reservations are slim to none. Meaning when a person is strong in who they are whether mixed tribed or not it the fact they are strong in the Indian Pride.

    Well, it shouldn't ,but coming from a small tribe, it does. When you're from a small tribe such as I am, we would want to keep the traditions going. However, there's only a limited amount of eligible people that we would consider to date and later marry, so we'd look elsewhere in Indian Country.

    I'm a mix of tribes so if my future bride is some thing other then mine it's ok by me. She just has to be a smart, funny, beautiuful, indian and feel confident in who she is.

    Well Cheyenne is the best if you have to ask. Then I ran away from the rez bc of too many woman issues lol. I lowered myself with a Cherokee. Now were stuck trying to figure out which language is the one to learn. Then I'm further stuck because as some of you know from an earlier thread I am one of the last Suhta speakers and don't know if I should pass that on or not.

    I grew up in a big city where no one cared or even took a second thought about it. When I moved to a small town, I was amazed on how people could be so different with their ways of thinking.

    The ultimate goal of many FB native people to have their children marry within their own nation. But, that doesn't always happen.
    Sometimes, especially with powwow people. There's a lot of interaction going on. (Interaction sheesh. whatta hell am I trying to sound like:) ) Snagging, I mean. Anyways, turns out my grand-daughter is still FB Indian, but two nations. It appears that she is going to learn 3 languages and appears to be getting a good start at it. I am so proud of her.

    So ....... to answer your question. It is better and much easier to teach the children one language and one tradition, but, marrying into another Indian nation is still in keeping our native blood strong. It's good.


    One question though, Dancingstar. Will you be teaching your future offspring the Lumbee language/traditions - your partners - or both? It's a hard decision.

    I'm glad that my son and daughter-in-law decided to do both.
