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.

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.

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.

My instinct is to call bull and unfortunately for them they have tread onto my turf here. I’ll get back to y’all later today on this.

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

Chances are better than 50-50 that anyone who can trace their ancestry back to frontier America will have at least some Native American heritage.

A few reasons for this are:

  1. Shortage of women among white frontier populations versus a surplus among Native frontier populations. The former was due to the fact that white men were the first to push westward in search of land or wealth to be mined. The Native American population either lost men resisting this expansion or offered surplus females as marriage partners in an attempt to gain gain alliances or trading partners. Much as both major parties now try to outdo each other in slobbering over the Hispanic voters.
  2. Relative isolation and small pool of available marriage partners, or the same reason you will find virtually everyone related in isolated communities ranging from West Virginia mining towns to Rocky Mountain ranch towns. This was perfectly normal until the advent of the automobile and its widespread use, starting in the 1950's-- a relatively recent period of American History.
  3. Cherokee heritage, in particular, is the most common of Native American heritage. As the major one of the five civilized tribes, Cherokee were clever adapters at producing a written language which became the norm for the tribe in a single generation, using the U.S. court system to resist expulsion, retreating to the hills of the Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee and Kentucky when that failed, then ultimately to Oklahoma.
  4. All five of the so-called civilized tribes (the other four being the Creek, Choctaw, Chickasaw and Seminole) backed the south in our Civil War and, as a result, had to adapt quickly to survive. One of the quickest ways was intermarriage with the white and black populations in the southeast. The hit network series Who Do You Think You Are pretty much verifies that some Native American DNA is widespread in the bloodlines of almost everyone who can trace their ancestry to the frontier era for the aforementioned reasons. In fact, absence is more the exception than the rule.

Sure..so do lots of people. My wife’s g-grandmother was we think Iroquois or part Iroquois and a DNA ancestry test confirmed that there were Native American markers in the family DNA. However, that is a long way being an enrolled member of a recognized Indian tribe, being raised in tribal traditions or even having a family memory of tribal customs or traditions. Gee maybe my wife should portray herself as Native American and share in the profits of tribal casinos, get minority scholarships and maybe even a college professorship position teaching Native American Studies.

There are “genealogists” who can show any paying client to be descended from whomever they want. If I wanted to be a descendant of Mary Queen of Scots, voila, *some* genealogist would draw that line. This particular genealogist’s bona fides bear a look.

" ... an 1894 document ..."

Did they use proportional fonts in 1894?

LOL! Of course! It’s in the same folder as Obama’s original birth certificate and college transcripts! And it only took four days to find, unlike Obama’s Selective Service Card or Harvard records, which remain lost after 30 years...
