Obama Claims Cherokee Ancestry--But Offers No Proof
Breitbart ^ | May 21, 2012

Posted on 05/21/2012 3:56:05 PM PDT by Righting

Like Warren, Obama Claims Cherokee Ancestry--But Offers No Proof President Barack Obama and Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren have more in common than just their liberal political ideology, Harvard Law pedigree, and Democratic Party affiliation. Both claim Cherokee ancestry, and neither can prove it.

This looks like the Liberals' frustration of "why Obama is seen as anti Israel..." and try (unsuccessfuly) to rebrand himnas the "first Jewish president..." LOL. Anything goes, just vote me in... say Mr. "Me, Myself and I."

I was taking a graduate class and one of my fellow students was an American Indian. Somehow the class discussion got on matters of race and he told us how often times when he meets someone new they claim to be part Indian and when they do it is always part Cherokee.

Obama is more related to Bin Laden than to the Cherokees

Yeah, like the time I tried to get a share of the Indian casino profits by claiming Indian heritage.

The claim to Cherokee “ancestry” is probably one of the easier ones to assert, yet one of the much more difficult ones to prove. There is little likelihood the Dunham family had any significant ties EVER with the Cherokees, and the mere presence of high cheekbones is absolutely no indication of any blood relationship. And for sure, the Obama side of the family had little, if any, opportunity to any kind of contact with the Cherokee people at ANY time in history.

Of course, there is significant reason to doubt that Barack Hussein Obama, Senior, has ANY genetic tie to the Current Occupant of the Oval Office, as there is no DNA evidence ever made public.

Perhaps somewhere in this undisclosed part of Obama’s genetic heritage, there may be some ancestor who COULD claim some kinship, if not to the Cherokee, to some other American Indian tribal affiliation. But again, given the deliberate concealment of any of Barack Hussein Obama II’s true roots, this is a very difficult assertion to prove in any positive manner.

Big deal. I supposedly have Black Foot and Cherokee in my bloodline.

Sadly, I don’t look one bit “High Cheek Bone Native American”. I got purdy blue eyes, Whitey Skin Covering, Hairy Legs(Sasquatch secretly envies me) and I guess I’m off the reservation because, as I’ve told my Mom, all my life “Who wants to self identify with the losing side?”

I knew Wilma Mankiller of the Cherokee tribe, George of the Pawnee tribe(forgot his last name but that was interesting how met) and Martha Moore Barker of Quapaw descent and worked for/with me. Martha Introduced me to The Osage Nation and The Ponca Nation.

Through their good referrals I was introduced to the rest of The Five Civilized Tribes.

I still don’t feel anymore Native American than before I met them nor do I feel the need to claim some faux heritage for the experience.

Why in the heck do people feel the need to put an asterisk to their name and really, really believe it garners them favors as being part of some down trodden group?

I am an American of the United States of America. I don’t need some cuddly, feel good, cheap azz, pejorative which is distinctly insignificant if at all to make me fool good or fool people into thinking I have some “really kewl history” behind me.

I tell yuh, it’s stoopit.

I also hear tell I have German, Irish, Scottish and English bloodline. To me I’m just an amalgam of the winning tribes of Celtic and Germanic “Native Europeans” and well, I guess we won.

But really, I’m just a red blooded, USMALE, stamped right here in the Best Country in the world.

Genuine American Made.

That’s because the Cherokee were the least hostile of injuns, and claiming a more murderous tribe got you shot on the spot.

Claim Cherokee and you were free to go. Like anyone could tell the difference back then.

I myself am partial to the murderous tribes. You knew exactly where you stood with them.

Supposedly have some American Indian in my family line. No idea what tribe, but on two occasions had people either ask if I had some American Indian in me or gave me some weird looks as if I was part American Indian. Do not look Indian. Definite pale skin. The first case was a lady of European descent who thought I had some Indian based on the way I moved around. Apparently Indians do not waste their movements. Very determined, measured and relaxed. Another case some actual Indians gave me some weird looks as if I was part Indian. Found out later that there is a way American Indians can tell. Its by the way you walk. Has to do with where you place most of your weight. Euro white trash walks on the front of its feet. Us American Indians walk on our heels :>

I have heard this discussion also, of a walking gait giving a visual clue to those of Indian ancestry observing someone. Then again, it could be that an individual is a trained outdoorsman (hunter,Navy SEAL,Ranger..etc) in the art of silent walking in the woods (tropical or otherwise).

For a little humor...as I read your post, I recalled Mark Twain's devastating analysis of James Fenimore Cooper's writing style (he being the writer of Last of the Mohicans, etc.) and a hilarious section about Indian walking that Cooper repeatedly abused:

"In his little box of stage-properties he kept six or eight cunning devices, tricks, artifices for his savages and woodsmen to deceive and circumvent each other with, and he was never so happy as when he was working these innocent things and seeing them go. A favorite one was to make a moccasined person tread in the tracks of a moccasined enemy, and thus hide his own trail. Cooper wore out barrels and barrels of moccasins in working that trick.

Another stage-property that he pulled out of his box pretty frequently was the broken twig. He prized his broken twig above all the rest of his effects, and worked it the hardest. It is a restful chapter in any book of his when somebody doesn’t step on a dry twig and alarm all the reds and whites for two hundred yards around. Every time a Cooper person is in peril and absolute silence is worth four dollars a minute, he is sure to step on a dry twig. There may be a hundred other handier things to step on, but that wouldn’t satisfy Cooper. Cooper requires him to turn out and find a dry twig; and if he can’t do it, go and borrow one. In fact, the Leatherstocking Series ought to have been called the Broken Twig Series."

Elizabeth Warren and obama may be descended from Cooper!! LOL!

Funny stuff. Am close to half Scottish myself, and the Indians who were giving me weird looks were in a reservation store. My friend who was driving stopped there (East of Las Vegas) to get some fireworks. Could care less for the fireworks myself. Picked up a bottle of Johnnie Walker Green Label Scotch. Was walking it to the counter, when I noticed the weird stares from the Indians. The older Indian said, that is good stuff. I replied. Too good.

President BARACK OBAMA was invited to address a major gathering of the American Indian Nation in upstate New York.

He spoke for almost an hour about his plans for increasing every Native American’s present standard of living. He referred to his time as a U.S. Senator and how he had voted for every Native American issue that came to the floor of the Senate.

Although President Obama was vague about the details of his plans, he seemed most enthusiastic and spoke eloquently about his ideas for helping his “red sisters and brothers.”

At the conclusion of his speech, the Tribes presented Obama with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name, “Walking Eagle.” The proud President then departed in his motorcade to a fundraiser, waving to the crowds.

A news reporter later asked the group of chiefs how they came to select the new name they had given to the President.

They explained that “Walking Eagle” is the name given to a bird so full of crap it can no longer fly.
