This thread is about Cherokee ancestry.  The topic is about Senator Warren claiming Cherokee connections, so I was just pointing out that there might be some truth in what she was told, as I found out.  I have no doubt that if she pursued it, she could turn up some proof.  In the past those with Indian connections faced extreme prejudice as my ancestors did.  They identified as White on 19th century censuses.

 

The question is why are you reading my posts if you disagree with them; tired of my posts; or whatever.  Why do you attempt to tell others what to post?  Why do you refer to your Cuban background?

Tx is having Native American blood is really that important in your life?
Why are you putting so much importance in an issue that only concerns you.


Yes.  As someone who has a deep interest in genealogy.  Why shouldn't I have an interest in my ancestors.  You once posted that you were mostly Spanish compared to most from Cuba.  Is that important to you?  And it is of interest to the rest of the family...verifies family lore.


I am sorry Tx, but you misunderstood my post or I didn't explain myself  correctly, I meant to say that those things were important to you but I didn't understand the publicity of any of this, No one is disputing anything that you have stated so why the continuous posting about your Native American heritage?

You seem obsessed with Trump.  Why aren't you working to get congresscritters elected this fall that are opposed to him?  Maybe Hillary could run for some office?

To the contrary, we have documentation of the connection, however because of the extreme prejudice my great grandfather and family chose not to pursue the point.  My g-g-g grandfather was born in 1803 and died in 1896 which insured continuity of information from the Cherokee ancestor from the 1700s.  Also remember, I'm a older than Senator Warren is and I got my information first hand from people who was around in the 1800s.

 

You don't know the full circumstances about this, but I do through documentation, plus I doubt your experience in genealogical research.

They didn't register with a tribe, but with the Special Commissioner appointed by the court.   But of course their applications were indexed.  That is not part of the discussion.

 

 

 Was Dr. Warren reasonable in assuming her grandparents did not lie to her?  I think we should always assume this.  Did she apply for any benefits or special treatment because of her ancestry.  Much research has proved she did not.  Is Trump's continued use of the term "Pocahontas" a derogatory and  racist term?  Native Americans in New Mexico seem to feel it is.  I am not sure any other races get a vote.

I hate to tell you but you are in the same position as the Senator is. You were told  by someone, but do not have a number from the Tribe to show your ancestor was a member. A lot of people carry Native American blood in small quantity and that is something they should be proud of. I do not know if I do or not. The way you find out for sure without a number is DNA testing.

How would I know...if you read my posts you would see I have no need of DNA testing.  I don't need anyone's word since I traced documentation for Caucasian and Cherokee.


Did you register with the Tribe and get a number?


I wasn't around back in 1906.  Were you?
