Hello All- My grandmother on my mother's side was from Ark. She was either Comanche or Cherokee. Could someone tell me this surname came from?
Was she just given away or adopted? You might start where she was born and what year she was born and who her real parents were ----- Original Message ----- From: "tipandchuck.gci.net" <Tip.and.Chuck@gci.net> To: <email@example.com> Sent: Sunday, November 24, 2002 7:59 PM Subject: Help My mother was a native american indian but never knew what tribe she was from. At a early age she was given away as a child. She lived all her life in Easton Maryland. There are so many tribes from there, I was looking at a diffrent web site and it's very difficult to know what is what. I have pictures of some of my relatives, and they definitly were Native Americans. They are not in traditional wear, but in Americanized clothing. What do I do? I want to teach my daughter about her Native American heritage as well as her African American heritage. But I an having trouble with this part. So far I think she was what you call "Metis". The areas and things she remembers family talking about are Cherokee and Pockohananans and possibly Sioux. Does that even sound close to what you would think. Can I have a DNA test doneon me and it will tell me what races I have in my blood. How do people get proof they are part Native American, it's obvious I don't need proof I am bl! ack. Help!!!!!!!!!!
