    Hi William:

    There is no reason to be sorry. My great grandmother on my mother's side was a Creek Indian (Muscogee from Alabama). My grandmother and aunts on my mother's side all look like Native Indians, but my mother took after my white grandfather. I am rather proud of my Native American Heritage, thank you very much. :0)

    GL,

    Terral

    I'm proud to say that I do!

    My mother is one fourth and my father is an eighth.

    That makes me a true American Mutt!

    my mother qualified for grants for higher education because of her native ancestry. Unfortunately, I didn't. Too much scottish blood in me.

    Could be worse, cousin. At least you're not French.

    Scottish blood is like poison when it comes to grants.

    Did you read the article William?

    It doesn't say that most people don't have Native American blood in their veins, it says to take stories of a "Cherokee Princess" with a grain of salt, because of how it translates. The article admonishes folks with a story of a Cherokee Princess in their bloodlines to not be surprised to find out that their ancestor was in fact from another tribe and most likely NOT native royalty.

    Apparently this is not a 'black and white' issue as your opening "Sorry" misleads.
