    Well I have recently learned ( after much research and questioning) what native American tribe(s) I descend From.

    Ill keep Count And list the Different tribes Once this starts rolling!

    [​IMG] Mixed descent Cherokee(Tsalagi) and Apache. My husband's mom is Sonoran Chiricahua Apache. I also have tons of famous people, but people think it's bragging or lying, so I'm careful who I tell. [​IMG]

    I am a 1/4 Indian on my dad's side, Choctaw to be exact. (Dads mother)

    But the funny thing to me is that the rest of my grandparents make me also Italian, Scottish, Irish and German! What a mix!! LOL!

    We were at the flea market last week and I always visit the native american stands.
    Well I noticed some dream catchers made out of wood , and thats the way I like to make them, All natural.
    So I made a comment to this large white man with a HUGE headset on an the convo went as follows:

    Me: "Oh! I love your dream catchers, I love making them but cant seem to get the grid work right"
    Him: " Well MY people Started this " ( Very snooty tone)
    Me. " Yeah, We are Mohawk"
    Him: ( turns his nose up ) " Same to ya" And he turns around and walks away

    LOL
