Who had the High Cheek Bones? Grandfathers side of the family or not?

Posted on 05/03/2012 7:00:19 PM PDT by VA Voter

Since it was Elizabeth Warren's Grandfather with the high cheek bones, which side of the family was the Cherokee Great, Great, Great Grandmother on?

What a silly question ~ the Great great Great granny was on ALL sides of the family. That’s what makes her special!

I am 1/64 Cherokee, and my relative was a Cherokee princess. Do I get minority status, i.e. money?

I’m Native American, too, according to Romney.

Tribe of Nephite.

Congratulations! You win a 0 interest loan at Harvard for a law degree! It’s probably clearable in bankruptcy as well! You also win a $50,000.00 cash settlement for that farm you always wanted to have but wasn’t given a loan for!

Well put. Slavik, Eskimo, some Africans, all have high cheekbones.

Where's my minority status? I mean preferential treatment. I mean goodies.

Hell, where's my stuff? Gimmee stuff!

If a Republican made that comment, the MSM would rip them a new racist arse hole.

And with my grandfather (below) and my wife being Russian (Slavic), imagine how confused my son could get. I guess I have to do parental intervention... He is all over the place...

Pete Postlthwaite must have been 120% Native American. Even though he was British.

She belongs to the same tribe as Professor Ward Churchill, and he vouches for her. That should be good enough for anybody! /sarc

But what kind of Russian?

Or, did you know about the American Indian practice of kidnapping white children? 's true. And they'd grow up to be indians, and living outdoors all the time and getting greasy and tanned, they'd look like deep coppertoned folks.

Why I ask about what kind of Russian is simple ~ not all Russian "ethnics" are Slavic. For example, the Sa'ami lived all the way over to the Kola. Tens of thousands of them were assimilated to a degree, but earlier many had been forcibly removed by the Swedes to America, and also by the Russians to Russia.

You might want to check out where his people actually came from ~ and that's not even getting into the other groups in Russia like the Jews, Turks, Mongols, etc. There are dozens of non-Slavic groups there.

The Skolt resist assimilation ~ there are 5,000 of them in Russia.

Maybe one should pay the $100 to have one’s DNA mapped. Who knows, it might show that one is eligible for benefits as an Indian. I might be, as I have high cheek bones, and my Grandfather use to kid my Grandmother that he thought she was part Indian.
