    Did anyone watch the show last night? Did you hear him sing that Ponca song and say “Aho”? :)

    My six year old son, and my 14 year old daughter are both Native Americans. They are members of the Poarch Creek Indians here in Atmore, Al. My daughter is very proud of her heritage and is involved in Pow-Wows. They love watching RJ and Jay Paul. My son is wanting a “swamp people” birthday party and says he is going to meet these guys.

    first, I want to highly praise RJ & J Paul for being on this show, they are my favorite team on the show. The love of GOD, family & living the natural way, plus the fact that they stand up for their Indian heritage is outstanding. I love to watch them doing “their thing”. I am part Native American also & I stand with pride beside my “swamp brothers”, besides, it’s time that the world learned the fact that alligater is good!, Creol & cajon cooking is outstanding & I love it, let’s hear it for R.J. & J. Paul!!

    My family and I watch weekly and pray for the safety of the swamp people. I believe the examples of family values, living off and respecting the land and tradition that is shown in this show is something to be embraced and held onto dearly and passed on to future generations. Bless all the Swamp People and your families!

    I tune in week after week to watch RJ and J Paul out on the swamp. Your father-son bond is incredible and the respect you have for your Native heritage, the land, and eachother is amazing to see.

    Stay safe….God Bless!!!

      So, what’s yer race? If you claim to be whitey yerself, then take a DNA test. I’ll bet that you have something else in you besides “Caucasian,” brah.

        Ok sure everyone has some other race in their background but at what point do you stop associating with the minority part of your blood? These two are nothing but a trickle of native blood for sure.

    Why doesn’t the Federal Government or any Native American tribe give federal Rcognsion that these two wanna be native american’s? THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS NEVER GIVEN THEM LEGAL FEDERAL RECGNISHION NOR HAS ANY OTHER TRIBE IN AMERICA! REMEMBER THE OLD NATIVE AMERICAN IN THE 1970 STANDING BY THE ROAD AN A CAR WOULD GO BY AN TOSS OUT LITTER AN A TEAR WOULD COME FROM HIS EYE? = WELL HE WAS AN ITALIAN, AND THE GUY’S ARE OF FRENCH DECENT FROM NOVA SCOTIA!

    Are you mad? What you’re saying is, because the Federal Bureau of Indian Affairs (a very corrupt bureau mind you) says they aren’t Native American, they aren’t? Aren’t you a little sheeple.

    R.J. may God bless you and your family and keep you safe. Wish the show would do more of the personal lives of the swamp people and not just gator hunting. I would like to know more of the Homa tribe, and mostly there customs and belief. I really admire the cross you where and would like to know if it is tribal made and if it has special meaning. wish you could buy that in History stores.

    Just wanted to add a little reply to Blackbird….the Houma tribe might not be recognized by a bunch of politicians way across the Country, true. But if they aren’t ndns then why were tribal members not allowed to go to school with the white kids until a few decades ago? They were segregated to an “Indian” school. Seems kind of contradictory to me, but it wouldn’t be the first time our Gov’t made it up as they went along.

    I assure you they are not “wanna-bes.” They ARE their culture. They work hard, have committed to their family and being good men more than a lot I have seen out and about and have earned a lot of people’s respect. People that don’t give respect easily, either.

    I think it doesn’t matter that they don’t look like a western US Native American. There are many nations. I am proud of the representation these two guys from LOUISIANA give. Sounds like Jay Paul had gone through all the same all my friends and family went go through daily here in Montana. Even on our own reservation. More power to these men from the south!

    Wish RP and Jay Paul well. With all the media attention, they need to remember as all in that public eye need to, that even more so they are “encompassed about with a great multitude of witnesses.” Best to the Molinere’s keeping that in mind where ever they go. You guys are the best!

    Obviously u ppl who are not of Native American decent don’t recognize the traits of native Americans … I am Native American and I look at RJ and Jay Paul and can see the Native American in them not just by how they wear their hair or how they act but the physical characteristics etc …

    We live near and have met RJ and J Paul several times. They are very gracious and kind and spend time with the people, sign autographs and speak about their work and lives. One month of the year, one month in early September to early October and that is it.

    Alligator is good, but I am partial to shrimp and crab, but alligator sauce piquant is a good dish over rice. Never overcook it or it is inedible!
