Am I 1/somethingth African-American since human beings originated in Africa? Can I claim minority status if so?

She can end all the speculation for about $200.

Yes and we know the name of the person from whom we derive it. I am 1/32 Swiss from the Remmick branch of my Family Tree. Timothy Remmick was at the Battle of Bunker Hill with Phinney’s 8th Kittery ME. Do you know what that counts for on an application? Absolutely nothing, unless I want to join a Minuteman re-enacted group.

Don't be silly. The comments on the original story tend toward the idea that 1/32 blood quantum doesn't or shouldn't count.

For the Cherokee and many other Indians FORMAL MEMBERSHIP (usually attested to with a little blue card) counts on two things ~ the appearance of 1 or more ancestors in the Dawes Rolls, and at least 'any', 1/4 or 1/16 Cherokee ancestry (the blood quantum) depending on which "band'.

It's up to the US Government ~ not commenters and not popular belief. http://www.tngenweb.org/tnfirst/recognized.html

The closest Warren got to a real Cherokee was when she rode in one.

Even if true, it still doesn't reverse the fact that when she was claiming American Indian ancestry for getting a job at Harvard she had no evidence of it nor any history of discrimination against her or any known ancestor which would "justify" her claim for special affirmative action treatment.

I liked what one commenter said. Scott Brown should declare himself 1/32 African-American.

Later on your ancestor or his heirs or survivors received land patents for territory in the West ~ and they'd go there, cut down the trees, open up the land, raise up a cabin, eat meat every day ~ yes EVERY DAY ~ and praise God for having created such a wonderful land.

Ever read this; http://books.google.com/books?id=vIkMAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA379&lpg=PA379&dq=%22timothy+remmick%22&source=bl&ots=IiMxD0PEz4&sig=vfZaskWJrYtIfH5H2AkvJw6RYD8&hl=en&sa=X&ei=gPmfT9WnLoLe2AXy1rWxAg&ved=0CCMQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=%22timothy%20remmick%22&f=false ?

GOOGLE tells me I"ve looked up this Remmick guy before.

So what. My wife’s roots trace directly back through the Red Bollings to Pochohantas, her 13th great-grandmother, and her maternal grandfather was a full blooded Cherokee.

One of my great-grandmothers from the 1600s was the daughter of a chief of the Turtle clan of the Mohawk nation.

Many americans have direct ties and not just links to indian ancestors. It is not any real claim to fame or political advantage.

IF her great great grandmother was on the Dawes Rolls then that ancestor was certainly subject to injustice based on race.

She or her parents and/or grandparents would likely have been involved in the forced sale of their lands in the South and their relocation like to Oklahoma.

We shall see.

isn’t cherokee one of those “catchall” tribal relations? IOW since there was so much intermarriage a claim can be stated for just about anyone. (as long as you don’t also claim a piece of the casinos)

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