DNA has now proven that I am a Cherokee Indian

There had been massive debate among our family line as to the genealogy of my great-great grandfather. So much so, that he was exhumed and DNA tests were performed. It has now been confirmed that he was 100% Cherokee Indian.

Which makes me a legal minority, and eligible for membership/benefits through the Tribe.

Sign me up, bitches!

I am now immune from the moniker "racist" and all you white bastards who stole my Peoples' land are gonna have hell to pay now!

In all seriousness.....he was exhumed and was determined to be 100% Cherokee. Pretty much throws a different light on everything I thought I knew, and some amazing irony into my family history.

I know someone who was kind of in the same situation. he found out that he was 1/4 Cherokee when he was in his mid thirties.
He went off the deep end, changed his name to 'feather', grew his hair out into a pony tail and generally became insufferable. Last I heard he was in North Carolina charging 10 bucks each to let tourists take their photo with him.

Yeah?

Well then, please get off your land.

Us White people need it.

Nothing personal, we just need what you got.

Just move to the reservation and you'll enjoy a liftime of government surplus canned pork. Maybe if you're really good we'll let your people run a casino.

Don't make us give your children smallpox infected blankets, now.

While most tribes, like the White Mountain Apache near me, require that one have 25% "apache blood" , the Cherokee is one of the tribes who wanted a bigger "tent".
One only needs to prove 1/64th cherokee blood to be put on the membership roles.

Oh really? My grandmother was 1/4 Cherokee and she got a check. My mother is an 1/8 which makes me a 1/16. Neither my mother or I get any money.
