O si yo! do hi tsu?

Tsi tsalagi

yep im 5/8ths cherokee, my great great grandmother pounded our native language into me young, and NOW i can't hardly remember it, just like spanish, throughout college i was fluent, 5 years after the fact, I cant even order at Taco Bell.

My family originated just northeast of Tennessee, before the trail of tears... the wolf clan
we have members in the DeerClan (not to be confused with the white deer clan)

Yes, shocking as it may look...I am status.

My father Oneida, band in Ontario and my mom is Irish/Scottish. I've only been to his a reserve a few times because of the distance so don't know my family on that side too well.

Hey neech from the 'Peg, or Dubb City as I like to call it. I'm Ojibway, brown and proud. But I prefer white girls over native ones, mostly because of looks, but their lifestyles and life ambitions is what really attract me. I need a girl to keep up with me, and sadly I haven't found one native that has solid direction in life. If you know of one, give me a shout.

I don't know what scares me most about this, spiritwolf, the genetic contributors, or the bad math

My name is Amy, Native name is Shell Necklace, and I am a quarter Apsaroke/Crow and of the Greasy Mouth Clan...with undocumented Eastern Band Cherokee and Blackfoot lineage on my Mother's side.

Posting again just because it so cool to see all the posts!! Status, Oneida Six Nations.

I'd actually be interested in corresponding with anyone from the Grand River Oneida reserve. My dad is from there and I still have family there but don't know them very well and they are all older (not very internet savvy).

My dad was stationed in Nova Scotia in the navy and he rarely ever returned home. I have only met my relatives a few times on that side of the family. It would be nice to know what its like there now. I haven't been there since I was a kid.

Hey everyone, I'm only 1/8th Cherokee but I've always been very proud of that part of my heritage. I don't know nearly as much as I'd like about that side of my family history due to some..."estrangement"..:) It's cool though to see a thread like this somewhere, every time I've seen a Native American forum topic it usually devolves into a bickering of who's tribe is better or "Comp me something at your casino" jokes, but then again I wouldn't mind being hooked up with a casino myself, so I guess I can't complain too much. :) Anyways, back to it, I am 26, single and I live in Orange County, CA(and no it's not like the tv show:)). I do alot of different work, my main source of income is in the cad/cam field, but I write for a few IT/Security firms,(yes I am aware that my grammar here is probably not convincing:)), and I have my little promoting team, we put on some clubs/raves every so often. Ok I've rambled enough for one post. :)

I'd be very interested in talking to anyone who is Cherokee or of any tribe that might be able to open my eyes to a little more info on where I come from. :)

Osiyo. Mixed Cherokee(Blind Savannah Band through my grandfather, but family is family), Celt and maybe some Iroquois from my ggranny's line. Used to go to stomps in TX, haven't been to any since I moved to AR. Is anyone going to the powwow at Mammoth Spring, AR, this weekend, or the one at Eureka Springs, AR, next month? Don't know if I'll be able to make Red Earth but would like to. I work as a Mental Health Counselor at at women's prison (and use some of the techniques of my ancestors) and am raising a teenage granddaughter.

Anyone going to the powwow at Eureka Springs, AR in a couple of weeks? It's at Turpentine Creek Big Cat Refuge and funding goes to care for the animals who live there.

Halito! I'm another blonde Native American. My grandmother was Choctaw and I have family from the Pearl River in Mississippi, across to Oklahoma and down to South Texas. My indian name is "Looks like woman" Don't ask me, I think my great grandmother got it out of a romance novel, but says I'm never quite what you see when you look at me. My spirit guide is a red tailed hawk. I remember wonderful evenings sitting at my elders feet listening to stories of our ancestors. Todays family just do not understand that closeness. Most of them have moved on to the happy land, but I remembered to tell my daughter as many of the stories told to me that I could remember.

Hello! I don't mean to dishonour or disrespect this thread by posting.

I'm a French Canadian, but I admire your ways and have tried to follow/honour the Red Road for about 7 years now. I've been an active member of a community near Perth, Ontario (five hour drive for me) for the last 5 years where I've been trying to learn. Our elder is Cree, although some of our teachings were Lakota.
Can't do much about my genetics (hope you don't mind a white guy posting), but my spirit wants to walk a good path ...

hau eh! osiyo!

my mom is from south dakota and illinois and is irish and scottish. my dad was from oklahoma and was 1/4 quapaw, 1/4 miami, 1/8 cherokee and irish. i am somewhat traditional, depending on which tribal culture we are talking about.

i moved out to missouri from connecticut and am living with my white relatives here, so i don't know the native community round-about. i'll fix that someday when it feels like a good time to. i do miss the "at-home" feeling of powwows and being with native folks.

Oh, what a wonderful thread!!!

Hi everyone, so nice to meet you all. Cree woman here, with heritage from Cumberland House, Sask. (lots of Crees here, where there's trees, there's Crees!!!)

Worked almost exclusively for the last five years with the Mi'kmaq here in Nova Scotia. The greatest folks with the greatest sense of humour and willingness to accept any of the People.

LOL, come to think of it, that could be said of any of the Peoples.

Hey, Spudmama, does your name have anything to do with the Wild Potato Clan?
There's a pretty great powwow in Mammoth Spring (just missed this year's) sponsored by the Amonsoquath Tsalagi. I got info on them, if you want it.
And there was a pretty good one at Eureka Springs at Turpentine Creek Wildlife Reserve. Used to be one around Clinton, but haven't heard anything from them in a couple of years. Gas costs too much to try to make it to Tahlequah or points west or south for a granny playing "single mom", these days. Think we mixed-breeds could hit the boys in DC up with a Granny's Council and get things straightened out pretty quick?

i am stone sensitive, a grand old cherokee traditional gift, and i gathered stones for a ceremonialist who was making medicine bundles. cherokee was his first language but he hadn't spoken it since his childhood in north carolina.

because my family had not named me, he decided to thank me with one, but he was too vain to look anything up. in an attempt to name me "stone woman" (nuya ageya) he accidentally named me "potato woman" (nuna ageya).

years later when i came online (mid-90s) other cherokees told me. i actually rolled on the floor laughing.

Hey, nIsh! I was a CD counselor for 12 years. Worked with women's issues, used some indigenous stuff (real basic things like feathering, minerals, herbs, etc) there and in the women's prison where I build on therapeutic community concepts in working with women who are about to parole in the Pre-Release program. Worked with a battered women's shelter, for 2+ years while going to college in the 80's (at 35). Trust I will be allowed to celebrate 22 years sobriety Aug 1, and I still attend meetings. Keep up the good work, ma'am!
