  10. Sue Whittom says:

    My mother told me about my heritage shortly before her death at age 93; I and other family members had repeatedly asked for information. I was told that my maternal great-grandmother was related to Chief John Ross. I am not sure how they were related, and I didn’t know he was Cherokee until I googled him. I assumed he was Cheyenne-Arapahoe since I was born in the Cheyenne-Arapahoe Nation; and, always felt I was Cheyenne. Is there a family tree or listing of his family members that I can access? Thank you for your assistance.

  11. Donna Toms says:

    There are 8 state recognized tribes in North Carolina. Why arent they listed? Waccamaw Siouan, Haliwa Saponi, Lumbee, Coharie, Meherrin, Sappony,Occaneechi Band of Saponi Nation, Eastern band of Cherokee

    • Mushbear says:

      I am blessed to know several wonderful folks from each of these 8 state recognized tribes in North Carolina. In fact, I often go to their gatherings each year. The Haliwa Saponi Tribe is the first gathering that I had ever attended in 1991, and I try to attend each year. I have relatives that are members of the Meherrin. I love the Eastern Bull Singers. I love John Blackfeather and his wife Lynette which are members of the Occaneechi Band of Saponi and I also love Beverly Payne and Lawrence which are also members of the Occaneechi Saponi. Many blessings to all and I pray that they will all receive Federal Recognition.

    • margaret sandoval says:

      over and over all these other tribes are mentioned but very rare to hear more about the tuscarora tribe. i know they fought the cherokee before and i know the smaller the tribe got they decided to go join the mohawks and all those nations up north. thats all i know but i think theres still a small amount still in eastern north carolina today. just wish there was more about them published and more mention of them when the tribes are talked about. they are part of my ancestry way back but i know very little about them.

    WE NEED A NEW VOICE FOR NATIVE AMERICA. WE NEED A NEW VOICE THAT WILL SPEAK FOR ALL NATIVE TRIBES.

    WE WILL NEVER REGAIN OUR RESPECTED POSITION IN THIS US GOVERNMENT UNTIL WE ARE ALL RECOGNIZED.

    IT IS SICKENING AND CONDESCENDING WHEN NATIVE TRIBAL LEADERS SEEMINGLY ALLOW THE WHITE PEOPLE, THE BLACK PEOPLE AND ALL OTHER NON-INDIGENOUS PEOPLE PROTEST AND CRY ABOUT THEIR RACIAL ABUSE……

    …. AND NOT ONE WORD SPOKEN FOR NATIVE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

    THE US GOVERNMENT DOES NOT SHOW ANY CARE OR VALUE FOR THE NATIVE AMERICAN VOTE.
    WHY?
    BECAUSE WE HAVE NOT MADE OURSELVES KNOWN. THE POLITICIANS DO NOT KNOW THAT WE EXIST. THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT NATIVE AMERICA – THEY HAVE NO IDEA OR RESPECT FOR INDIAN COUNTRY.

    WE NEED A VOICE THAT WILL SPEAK FOR ALL OF NATIVE AMERICAN TRIBES.

    WE NEED A NATIVE AMERICAN CONGRESS – WE NEED TO BE HEARD!

    WE MUST STOP BEING PASSIVE AND COMPLACENT.
    WE MUST NOT ALLOW NATIVE AMERICAN EXISTENCE AND CULTURE CONTINUE TO BE A FREE WORLD COMMERCIAL PRODUCT.

    GATHER ALL TRIBAL CHIEFS AND COUNSELS OF ALL NATIVE AMERICAN PEOPLE – DEMAND EQUAL REPRESENTATION FOR ALL.

  19. Terry Fox says:

    I have a friend who is 1/2 Indian. Her father was full blooded. Can you guide me to where she can find some assistance? She’s in her late 50’s and has no income; she does get food stamps and shares them with a guy who lets her live with him and doesn’t charge her rent. She does not work and men help her sometimes for favors. Please direct me where she can go for assistance. Thank you.
