      i’m trying to find out some info about my Greatgrandmother,i grew up with her wonderful and amazing stories about her childhood and her mother.She told me that her mother was a fullblooded Algonquian Indian.She was quite proud of this fact and passed down that pride to me.Especially through hear oral stories of our family. Don’t get me wrong..i’m a mixed bag as far as my heritage goes..i’m Native American,Scottish,Irish,French and Swedish.Yet my heart and soul yearns to know more about my Algonquian history!! not even details of my own family but just knowlegde about the tribe. i’ve been able to find a few things on-line but not much.From what i have found out there one of the oldest tribes that many of the other North American Tribes branched off of.Basically i need some help finding out about My Family.If you have some info or know where i should look it would be a wonderful blessing..thankyou Melanie

        As a child in Canada I learned about Heawatha [ex-spelling], he was of the Algonquian tribe/nation.
        I loved learning about the people living in Eastern Canada. You could research this story.

    i returned a meteorite with their art in it.its me they waited for.the one who seeked out the creator and who was taken up by same.my revelations are that of the Hopi Parrott Katchina.i have been chosen to speak for the people as tribal council refuses the task at hand. my mission is to free the natives and return all stolen artifacts .
    my main task is to stop the rape and the lies.my tenet is unbending, unswayable,untouchable. i carry the truth and it is to be common knowledge.i am in the position to call a meeting to discuss your release and after we shall reestablish the laws to live by.old oriabi the first two weeks of jan is most preferred as the spirits grant wishes in these weeks.i have every stitch of truth in my knowledge.not one thread excapes my visions.it is upon you right now and here.your release is eminent. i fired the parole board and replaced it with the truth. i stand as your lawyer in this court of corruption. now is the time you waited for. come help me rebuild your greatest city.freedom.with a vision from beyond, here I AM.

    • Pusasa says:

      you have to find out where down the line you have purebred anctreoss.then you divide it up.take me for example.i have native american in me.my great great great grandmother was 100%.so that means my great great grandmother was 50%.my great grandmother was 25%.my grandmother was 12.5%.my dad is 6%.and that makes me 3%.just divide everything and you will have an answer.

  11. robin Adria says:

    My granny told me that her 5th great grandmom married the SAC Indian chief, I believe he was called Black Foot or Hawk do they exist any more and how do I find this for my family Tree. Thank you for your time. Also why is it when I spot a wolf or a picture I feel so drawn to that wolf, I have collections of them in my home.

    • Samsat says:

      I’m from a culture that doesn’t know what the hell it’s doing. Seeing this video, I’m moved by the pasosin filled faces. We fight with ourselves over budgets and irrelevant politics. Meanwhile, we are making the planet uninhabitable, allowing starvation, poverty. Soon, we’ll cause the oceans to rise and millions to migrate or die, THEN we’ll decide to do something about it. I believe that aboriginal peoples have some wisdom on the environment. We don’t deserve it, but I hope you’ll forgive us.

    “We need independency in order to becmoe great.”The United States of America continues to be the most prosperous of all nations on the earth, with a production output that floors all others, even despite the horrendous economic travesty that President Obama is perpetrating on us (though he may yet succeed). It is incredibly naive to compare the prosperity of the citizens of the USA to the likes of China, Brazil, Egypt, and the Arab Nations, which have significant portions of their populations living in almost medieval conditions such an assertion is positively surreal. The poorest of Americans and First Americans live as kings compared to many in those countries. Even compared to Japan and Israel, who in this country would truly want to trade his standard of living for theirs?To becmoe great the First Nations need to exercise the independence and freedom they already have, stop offering themselves up into slavery by bowing down at the altars of socialism and kissing the feet of the high priests of entitlement Obama, Kennedy, et al selling their once free souls into slavery.The First Nations were endowed by the Creator with the rights of Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. The Constitution of the United States of America guarantees those rights to its citizens, even its First Citizens. But they have to exercise those rights to enjoy them. Unfortunately too many of them already have relinquished their spirits into slavery.Awake! Rise up from the dust! Stand as Men! Cast off the shackles of sin and dependence! Your greatness lies within you as children of the Creator Himself. If you think your greatness lies with Obama, then you are destined to remain in slavery. But that is not your destiny. You will yet blossom as a rose and becmoe a scourge to tyrants and petty tyrants who seek to sap away your liberty with the soma of socialism and godlessness.

  18. JaneyMae says:

    Why are State recognized tribes not here? Are we still about EXCLUSION of other Native People? It is bad enough that the “white” government tries to tell us we are not legit, let’s at least support one another…

  23. Cindy says:

    I was born in WA State and my mom is from Gleichen Alberta and 100% Blackfoot from the Siksika Nation. I have been told that the Siksika Nation is not federally recognized when I apply for services. It is my understaning that the Blackfoot of Canada and the Blackfeet of Montana are the same. The Blackfeet are federally recognized. Where can I find information about being a Siksika member from Canada and being federally recognized in the US?

  25. Lisa Ridgedell says:

    All of my relatives are from Louisiana. My mother’s relatives
    live in northern La.around Alexandria. My mother provided information about how we were descendents from the Powhatan tribe. I couldn’t figure that out since they are a Northern tribe. My mother’s family also had more Irish, Scottish, and French. What I’m interested in is finding out what Indian heritage my father’s side has. I was told it began with a C and can’t remember the rest. His family were country and lived in Montpilier. I was born in Amite, La. Is there any tribes indigenous to that region?

  26. Alexandra Sfondouris says:

  27. Lori Farrar says:

    I had almost forgotten about my family history until I came across this site. I am now 60 and I will tell you what my mother ( Rosemary Virginia Clapp-Schlicher-Estes ) told me when I was young. Her father Harold Clapp was an Indian Chief and his costume was given to the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury Ct. from there it went to the Smithsonian Institute. They lived in Waterbury Ct. and when Rosemary got married to Roy Schlicher her family moved to California.I heard her say the tribe once but I was young but think it started with a P. Since I don’t have a time frame for any of this I have had a great deal of difficulty finding much about the history. I would love to give my sons and grandchildren this information.I know it is a lot to ask but if someone could please help me I would be so grateful.

  28. tammy says:

    I’m looking for a Native American Medicine Man that can possibly help my 5yr. old Granddaughter. She has a very rare kidney disease. Western Medicine is saying there is no cure. I do not believe that. I believe your ways and medicines can help her. I will travel to the ends of the earth for her.
    Thank you..
    any response would be deeply appreciated.

  29. Ravon Upthegrove says:

    im having trouble finding out what tribe my great great grandfather was apart of is there any easy way?

  30. Judy says:

    Hi – I don’t see any tribes from the State of Virginia. My family is of the Chickahominy Tribe. We were neighbors of the Powhatan Tribe. The Native Americans who first encountered John Smith.b “The Chickahominy (“The Coarse Ground Corn People”[3]) were an autonomous Algonquian-speaking tribe when the first permanent English settlement was founded at Jamestown in 1607. They were led by mungai (“great men”), who were part of a council of elders and religious leaders. The Chickahominy’s original territory consisted of the land along the river that was eventually named after them, the Chickahominy River, from the mouth of the river near Jamestown to what is now New Kent County.” And why aren’t we recognized by the federal government?

  31. Lisa Snow Vitali says:

    Hi,
    I am looking for information regarding my Mothers birth mother. Her whole life she has thought that her birth mom was a Native American woman whose name was Jayne Cochco she always said cocoa. She said her father Ralph Teel had a relationship with this girl and my mom was the result. She stayed on my grandparents farm in Pennsylvania for a while helping to raise my mom and she said she was named Jayne after her birth mother. My grandmother raised my mom along with her other children, my mom does not look like the rest of the family except for my grandfathers genes and none of us kids look at all like our cousins. If you can give me any direction I would greatly appreciate it. My mom passed away a few years ago long before her time and I would like to find the truth.

    Thank you,
    Lisa

  32. Mariana says:

    Yo no pertenezco a ninguna tribu, soy argentina. Simplemente me comencé a interesar por su cultura hace un tiempo por unos sueños por loco que parezca. Es muy interesante la manera de ver la vida que han tenido.
    Actualmente, cómo es la situación social de sus descendientes? les han reconocido más territorios? Optaron los más jóvenes por mantener en su mayoría su cultura? Saludos!
