Raven's right - the threads are getting bloody at times, and the ingnorance and ill-faith is sometimes intimidating, depressing and irritating, but I'm doing my best (and so are others, brown and otherwise) to share good information with a good heart and mind. Except for the occassional time when I just slash my opponent to bits without sharing anything, but this is reserved for when I lose my patience with the haters... ;) Wrowr!


report any rules violation abuse to me directly or to the help/suggestions forum, and it will be dealt with... "slash your opponent to bits" and you might end up facing forum suspensions for off topic yourself.

As with any good community, we ask that you all report abuse to make it a better place.

Welcome to all Natives who have posted to say hello since last I visited this thread

Hey, Nish and Spudmama, got something for you guys to pray with me about. Could cost me my job if I stay directly involved in this issue. I was told to quit doing "native american therapy" after feathering a sister who is incarcerated. Apparently she told another NA inmate and someone (non-native) else had a problem with it. In the discussion it was linked also to "native american religion" and I was told I am to not do anything like that again. I don't want to start a conflict, but I do know that the Islamic religion is allowed to have a chaplain and conduct their ceremonies or whatever they're called. Feathering is such a little thing and is not anti-anything. I am allowed to use an occasional NA CD for centering with the inmates only BECAUSE I also use Celtic music as well. There is so much therapeutic stuff we are not allowed to do in prison because the inmates might use it in some criminal way (can't have crayons in the compound).
This sister's mother wanted to have a feather ceremony when she completes Therapeutic Community (loosely similar to old Cherokee Peace Villages), but I am not involved in that at all and don't have any contact with her mother. I do not want to feed the fires of prejudice, I do want to see NA inmates in this state have their civil rights as well as anyone else.

Does anyone have any suggestions on tracing heredity / family lines? I have Cherokee, probably Texas, on both sides, but not enough specifics. Have a relative sending the paternal family tree, which goes back to the pilgrims.... but I understand that the Indian branch is deadended.

Hey there...how's things?
I'm an Ojibway from Manitoulin Island, but I live in St. Catharines where I work as a Fundraiser, among other things.
I've been interested in Native ways, but due to my family losing their traditions, I'm afraid I'm what they call an "apple", though I disagree with the terminology.
Anyway, don't even get me started.
That's all for now.
Oh yeah, I'm single, attractive, strong, have 2 kids, and 2 cats, and I support myself.

You can try googling ancestry or geneology....you come up with all sorts of things, depending on how well you can use a computer.

Looking For Family
Posted: 12/26/2006 7:17:48 PM
My mother was German & Swiss, but my father was French Canadian with a last name of NADEAU.
His mother was full blooded Native American and his father... I am not sure, but would not be surprised if he were part Native as well.
I have been told they were Ojibiwa or possibly my grandmother was Saulteaux. Is it possible she used Saulteaux as her maiden name?
I am 50 years old, my father's parents were at least in their 70's when I was a child.

Both of my parents died whenI was young and no one knew how to reach my father's family. My mother's family had my brother and I put in foster care because no one else would take us. Since I was a kid I didn't know how to find my father's family in Canada and no one in authority tried. But now I would like to find some of them at least.

I remember my father had a sister in Winnepeg named Rita. There were several brothers, named Jean Paul, Roger, Rocky, Benoit, and my father was Adrien.

My uncle Benoit had a wife, Theresa, and they had 13 kids. They moved to Redwood City, CA for a while but returned to Qubec after less than a year here.
One of the girls, Pirette married an American service member - Steve but died at a young age from a work related illness. One of the boys married a US woman - Linda.

I wanted to apply for recognition of my heritage, but because my father was born at home with me not having a clue what parish he may have been baptized in (they were Catholic), plus the fact they were native NORTH Americans, which never had a registry, and were not US natives, I came up empty handed.
Anyone have any ideas how to remedy this situation?
Nonetheless, I want to say hello to all.

Hey guys.

I'm not Native American myself, but lived beside 6 nations (Cayuga Ontario) for many years and grew to love the culture and people there. Also spent time with Pat Rivers, whom some of the locals may know.

Just passing my respect, and am glad to have come across this thread.

Well Good Afternoon Waya Digadili I am so very proud to have made your aquaintance. (hope I spelled that right) I too am definitely of the wolf spirit. I have amber eyes just like them. I am part native american. My sister said when I was young that we were part Lakota but when I got allot older and was talking about my dad being born in Macinaw Island, I had some folks tell me that I am probably part Ojibwe, not Lakota. Either way I am & have always been very very proud of my native american heritage. I have english,irish,italian&scottish in me as well. While I also appreciate some of the aspects of those cultures, I am profoundly interested in the native american in me and consider myself a native american rather than what most would typically call me...white. Most do see the native american in me right off but others see the italian or the irish. I am very much into native american beliefs, arts, music,food,cultures and would appreciate all the education anyone on this forum could offer me. I just like you am extrememly proud of the native american blood in me and all that Mother Earth, Father Sun and the Great Spirit have blessed me with. I look forward to making some native american friends on here and hopefully a warrior for myself to have fun in this thing we call life. I once had a Lakota friend tell me that the indian name he gives me is Cante Ista. He told me it meant the eye of the heart and I do very much believe that the way I have lived my life, think, and look upon life and people is through my heart. Sometimes that has gotten me into trouble with the ones who like to take advantage of people but that does not change me. I will remain the loving decent openminded live & let live person that I am always...I can bend but I will not break. My heart go's out to all my native american and part native american brothers & sisters. May Brother Wolf watch over your always and the Great Spirit guide your paths with the warmth of Father Sun and the strength of Mother Earth. lol
