    I don't care if anybody wants to hear it or not, and I'm not interested in your 'personal anecdotes'; I have a lifetime's worth of my own, and many centuries of history to rely on for mine, so I don't need those silly Billy Jack movies or Hollywood nonsense, but thanks for playing.

    Welcome. Unfortunately the biggest American problem is shown in the first five words of your introduction...... are you an Indian OR are you an American? They're no more compatible than me saying I'm English-Irish-German-Scottish-Norwegian-American. I'm not. I'm an American. Nothing else.

    Don't need one, I'm not a parasite, and you're welcome. Having one doesn't mean anything any more; too many 'tribes' enrolling anybody who applies in order to qualify for casino exemptions or to peddle untaxed cigarettes or just to shake down some company or local government for payoffs to go away.

    They don't enroll just anybody, you must prove you have ancestry on the Dawes Roll..

    Actually they do, and have been shown to have done that. Rules aren't always followed, after all, and unless some whistleblower comes along and bestirs an issue, most rules are in fact ignored. Some Cherokee and other eastern tribal chiefs were less than 1/8th 'native american blood' or even zero blood relations in the 18th Century, so no, it means little.
